T-shelf it up

The T-Shelf. A.k.a. the triangle shelf - a system made of plywood, steel cables and zipties that allows you to play Bob the Builder and create some sweet Moravian star-like structures for your home.

"The concept was to create furniture for modern nomadic culture. It is easy to set up and pack flat for space saving transportation. The first approach was to get rid of screws. This also gets rid of the tools in assembling the furniture. T-Shelf uses cables and zipties to tie every triangle into one piece of furniture/sculpture and functions as displaying books, magazines, plants, pictures, or anything you want to display." - Yes, I am aware of the floetry (read: flowing poetry) of that short description, but please give them a break (they're architectural geniuses, not literary ones). I think this is amazing - DOPE, if you will - a must.

It suits both the organizational psycho and the art aficionado - cleverly ironic.

Song of the day: Yelle - Ce Jeu (The Twelves Remix) - Thank you to Luana for the musical tip :)
