Onwards to greater things...

The “Together!” exhibition at Vitra Design Museum campaigns for a common space with successful examples of a new architecture of community.
Siedle letterboxes are part and parcel of the system concept like all the other Vario modules.
They can be combined almost at will with all the function modules and adjust ideally to any individual design concept or architectural requirement. They can be made to disappear into the wall or stand proud in front of it for a truly outstanding impression. And despite all its scope for transformation, it always creates a formal unit with any module combination. Each Siedle letterbox is a perfect example of functionality and noncompromise quality in its own right. Instead of low grade sheet steel, the housings are manufactured completely in aluminium. And for a more detailed look at what happens when the Siedle engineers re-invent the letterbox, just turn to pages 16 and 17 - or better still, come and see one for yourself. Pull up the flap. Open up the back. And form your own opinion. Design, function and quality - these are the common denominators for all Vario letterboxes. Whether the letterbox for front removal is the right one for you depends on your requirements and your habits, on the building layout or technical circumstances. The same applies when choosing a surface or flush-mount version. For larger properties, space-saving letterboxes are particularly suitable. This allows different occupants to receive their post within a minimum of space. Common to all the different letterboxes is compliance with postal standard DIN EN 13724, a durable aluminium construction and optimum resistance to attempted unauthorized opening and also adverse weather conditions. When used in combination with the Vario functional modules, the letterbox turns into a communication centre.
If a suitable wall opening is available, a pass-through letterbox often provides the most aesthetically pleasing solution particularly in combination with communication technology and lighting.
