Silicone pads on the rear of the Shelframe shelves allow them to grip the wall, preventing tipping when heavier items are placed on one side.

Shelframe is a shelving system designed by London based designer Bahbak Hashemi-Nezhad that suspends from a single point.

The shelves are designed to occupy a space normally reserved for a framed images, and they act so as to frame compositions of everyday objects for use and display.

The cable tension allow the shelves to support heavy objects while the silicone pads create a self-securing system that grips the wall as the shelf becomes loaded. This also means that the shelf does not tilt to one side if heavy objects are placed unevenly.

    they are detailed very nicely, but how many times has this been designed already???

    Good execution of a good idea. However:

    "frame compositions of everyday objects for use and display"

    Artful arrangements of household items look daft and artificial even when done for interiors magazines. People who do it in real life don't deserve good furniture. (imho)

    wonder how much imbalance those silicone pads can hold until it topples over to one side…

    Pretty simple and practical. This is one of those instances where we ask … Why did not I think of that before?.
    Although its shape reminds me of the Marlboro box.
