Umbra Slice Bread Box with Built-In Bamboo Cutting Board
Cute but not perfect.
Bianca from Phoenix, AZ– Verified Buyer
I had been searching for a white bread box and loved the look of this. Would only wish it wasn't just a plastic shell but I don't even notice it when it's on the counter. Not much fits in it, anything more than a loaf of bread and the cutting board slams open.

The U+ Studio Collection, which offers a range of sophisticated aesthetics from raw to sleek, can be found exclusively at contemporary design retail specialists.
Umbra began in 1979, when boyhood friends, Paul Rowan and Les Mandelbaum joined forces to create exciting, everyday products that alter the overall aesthetic of a home, beginning with a printed window shade unlike anything then in the market ("umbra" means shade in latin).
Twenty-five years later, Umbra's award-winning design team - 22 men and women from all over the world and notable outside product designers, all under Paul Rowan's direction - remains the heart and soul of the company. Its offices worldwide now house more than 450 people.
