There was once a day when shipping containers were used exclusively to, well, ship stuff. Like TVs and Teddy Ruxpin. Somewhere along the way, though, the hep kids stopped talking to Teddy, became designers, and "re-imagined" said containers into everything from chic hotels and fancy restaurants, to food trucks and office space. (But interestingly, not into a Container Store, which would've made a lot of sense.)
Anyway, new-wave containers are everywhere these days and they look pretty damn cool. Here are 12 you should appreciate.
