Post Boxes UK Limited, the UK’s authority and leading independent supplier of bespoke mailbox solutions, is pleased to announce that it has recently joined with a leading German design house in offering a range of wall mounted letter boxes and stunning architectural products.

 

 

Exquisite Design

One of the leading design companies in Germany producing minimalist, architectural pieces for the home and the office. Their product range is as diverse as it is beautiful. It includes contemporary mailboxes, architectural signage and door plates, door stops, fire places and even bird houses.

There are over 15 design-led styles available, and whilst the majority share the same form factor of being a square designed stainless steel unit, most suited as wall mounted letter boxes, the variety of different door designs gives each mailbox it’s own character.

Diverse Materials

The different door materials on offer include glass, brushed stainless steel, toughened perspex and wooden postboxes. Nuances such as frosted glass, opaque glass, dimpled glass, and coloured glass are classic examples of the innovative use of such materials which give the wall mounted letter boxes their uniqueness.

Form and Function

But good design is a little comfort if wall mounted letter boxes can not stand the test of time. These contemporary mailboxes are manufactured to the highest possible standards. This is German engineering. Function led design using quality materials. All their products are manufactured in Germany with a painstaking attention to detail.
