It’s been a while since milk crates were used solely for transporting milk. They’re common enough in contemporary home furnishing and storage to be sold at the Container Store in a variety of colors. Cratemen are a famous kind of street art. There’s even a blog dedicated to the diversified “milkcrate lifestyle,” which sometimes includes posts about innovative milk crate furniture.

Starting June 11, you’ll be able to see another beautiful example of milk crates in action at FIGMENT NYC on Governors Island. The Living Pavilion, pictured below, was the winner of FIGMENT’s first ever City of Dreams Pavilion competition.
