Called Under My Roof, the design has a bent steel frame with wooden trays.

A chimney-shape on the roof can hold pens.

The units come in either one, two or three storeys and could be arranged together to form a little neighbourhood.

The objects can be mounted on the wall or placed on surfaces.

Here's some more from the designer:


Under My Roof

Its part of a bigger exercise in which I tried to create a connection between architecture's icons and the use of scale and proportion to apply them into areas more related to industrial design. Other projects such as "Hool Na chair" and "From A Lost City" have served as starting points.

Under My Roof is based on 3 axes: 1) The traditional cottage, with its angled red roof, easy to find both in the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom, as in Mexico and the United States. 2) A typical dollhouse. 3) The need to organize and store small items, specially in environments such as homes, offices, desks, children's rooms, etc..

These 3 axes are represented in a very simple and basic way. A vertical shelving system that makes use of the architectural elements already mentioned, where each level reflects the possibility of a different use, and where small details like the chimney find new values, not just functional, but rather, emotional. You can place Under My Roof on your desk or table, or also used as a shelf on the wall.

Under My Roof its presented as a conceptual exercise and consists of 3 variations: 3 houses, 3 different needs. Together they generate a kind of neighbourhood, creating a unique skyline, fun, but always functional. Thanks to the selected details and materials it can be used by children and adults alike.
