The TomTom Letterbox

Design studio DesignByThem launch their collaboration with Tommy Cehak, reinvigorating the letterbox.

The TomTom Letterbox represents the first in a series of products from collaborations between DesignByThem and independent Aussie designers.

Made from powder-coated Zincalume, the TomTom is highly rust-resistant and uses Nylon pivots for smooth opening, while a tab at the back means it can be locked with a standard padlock.

Inspired by the Australian suburban landscape, TomTom reflects the desire of homeowners to differentiate and customize their home on the streetscape. “From manicured gardens to concrete rendering and colour schemes, the possibilities for making one’s home unique seems endless” says Tommy.



DesignByThem (apart from being one of our favourite young studios) have a passion for Australian manufacturing and supporting emerging designers.

The letterbox comes in 5 colours and retails for AUD$330, with the Australian hardwood post an extra AUD$120.
