THINKK Studio wanted to develop a versatile, stackable shelving design that provides multiple functionalities, including hanging space and adjustable surfaces.
"To find a fresh system for modular shelving we decided to start the project by thinking about detail first," the designers told Dezeen.
They created a framework comprising jointed wooden batons that stack neatly thanks to the arrangement at each corner and don't require any additional fixings to lock the individual modules together.
"The cross-section of the four legs is intentionally designed for stacking," added the designers. "When the shelves are flipped horizontally and stacked on top of another one, the legs perfectly insert down and sit on the lower shelf."
Flipping and stacking the units creates a random rhythm of the vertical bracing bars and additional metal surfaces.
Vertical batons on either side of the shelves protrude above the horizontal surface to provide a hanging hook.
Slits in the shelves and batons opposite create gaps into which the perforated aluminium sheets can be slid to provide surfaces for dividing the space, hiding mess or acting as a backdrop for objects.
The aluminium surfaces are also fitted to the two vertical bars to create an additional horizontal shelf in the middle of each unit.
The modules are available in natural oak or in a variety of coloured stains, with the aluminium sheets produced in complementary hues.
