Shelving/Storage

Catcher by formfreunde

Check out this odd trapezoidal wall storage ‘catcher’. I’m not quite sure how it attaches to the wall or how much weight it holds, so you might ask before you buy, but it’s definitely an interesting storage option. It sort of reminds me of the Barnacles by Plodes Studio (in that it shares an organic faceted shape and functions as wall storage).

The Catcher is a practical wall covering. It consists out of as many elements as you like. The elements can be folded together to form one object. The Photos show a Catcher consisting out of eight modules. You can design you own catcher and order the amount of modules you need, or you tell us the size your catcher should have and we will suggest a configuration. The modules can be connected side by side or back to back, they can not be connected side to back.

PP Plastic.
The catchers sides have a length of approx. 34cm and it is approx. 17cm deep.
The price stated is for one module only.

Loadbearing MShelving

Customizable storage systems aren’t really a new thing, but Loadbearing’s MShelving does have a certain appeal with its industrial frame with pick-your-own door color options. With somewhat reasonable price points, it could fit your storage needs quite well.

MShelving… allows you to create your own look from a wide range of interchangeable colored steel and wood veneer sliding doors and half- and full- height drawers. MShelving was designed by Mathias Frei of Zurich, and is produced in Switzerland and Italy. It combines a sturdy, fairly industrial-feeling steel shelving system base with a refined, simple and attractive sliding door system… The shelving unit itself is made of galvanized steel. The wood finish doors are wood veneers (all from sustainable forests) on a particle board base with a galvanized steel handle edge, and the color and metallic finish doors are made of powder-coated steel.

Colors: Wooden Veneers, 21 Colors, Metal Finishes

Note: Keep in mind the prices shown below are for the units only, the price will increase depending upon how many doors you want and what wood or color option you choose.

B-LINE Zig-Zag Modular Bookcase

This modular bookcase can be arranged in several different ways to fit your space. From the description it seems as if two of the elements are included in the price, yet take note that it looks like three are shown in the above picture. Four would be needed to create a complete column or circular shape.

“The two elements that make it up can be alternated in such a way as to obtain a partitioning structure or a wall bookcase, or can simply be used to make up half-circles or columns.”

Four Degrees by MicroWorks

I love this so much it hurts my feelings. It’s still currently in prototype, but frankly I’ve been bored with all the available options for shelving so I wanted to post something a little more exciting. From a Tokyo based design firm called MicroWorks–the designers discovered that books tilted at a 4 degree angle don’t accumulate dust as quickly as books which are stored flat. Whatever the reason for the tilt, I love it.

Shelving Unit from Brick House

Seeing as I’m mightily impressed by this shelving unit, you might be too. Morgan of The Brick House built this unit out of plumbing pipe and fittings for about $200 (and apparently a lot of frustration). It sure looks good, and if you’re brave enough to embark on this DIY project, check out the supply list here.

Muuto Stacked Shelf System

Apologies for the crazy price linkage on this shelf system, but it took a while to figure out who had the correct listings and for the best price, and apparently there’s only one U.S. retailer (is that right?). The randomness possible with stacking blocks just can’t be beat sometimes…you can buy however many you need and organize them however you want. I like the mixing of pine and white as well, with green clips(!).

Available in 3 sizes / building blocks:
Small: 218 x 436 x 350 mm, £75.00
Medium: 436 x 436 x 350 mm, £105.00

Rock N Roll Shelving System

This is a little similar to the OTO100 Storage System obviously, but it’s different in that it’s made from paperboard rolls and is velcro’d together. Anybody see a DIY project waiting to happen? Just have to find some paperboard rolls…

Made in Sweden, Rock’n’Roll is a unique eco-shelving system. Made from paperboard rolls and velcro’d together however you like – fun and functional.The price is for five units in different sizes.

The rock’n roll shelves comes in set of five different sizes: 32cm, 37cm, 41cm, 47cm and 52cm diameter.

Sawhorse Console by Jonathan Adler

Hmm, sawhorse legs on a storage console…good or bad? I’m leaning towards good, but I’d like it a little more if there were other leg options to choose from.

Our pared down take on the classic sawhorse is used as a leg for this cabinet. Shown in white oak with ebonized doors in a surprising, chiseled finish. Touch latch door closure.

Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk

I post this with considerable trepidation. On one hand, having a huge trunk to stuff all sorts of work papers and items plus a computer would be exceptionally nice in that you could close it all off and see a nice looking old trunk instead of a messy workspace. On the other hand it is absolutely huge and might look like an elephant in the corner, plus some people might assume you have a Real Doll in there, and that would not do your reputation any good whatsoever. So, it’s up to you to decide whether the risk is worth the advantage, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. (Also, if you’re into the antique steamer trunk thing, there’s a sizable collection of them (media stands, dressers, etc.) to check out at Restoration Hardware).

* Crafted by antiques dealer and furniture maker Timothy Oulton of London
* Reproduction antique steamer trunk
* Features a pull-down desktop and multiple drawers, cubbies, wire management and bookshelves
* Stands on wheels for mobility and closes for storage and privacy

Melli Compact Lounge By Urbancase

Keep those ‘emergency supplies’ close at hand with this wall mounted bar cabinet. (Shame that the price is quite high, but maybe that means it’s made extremely well?)

safety is always first, but happy hour is a close second. named for the bar at tempelhof airport, the melli compact lounge is slim, wall mounted and provides storage for your favorite elixir. bar tools are included but liquor is not. the laminate work surface is easy to clean. and…in case you need a nightcap…the soft open hinges prevent the door from slamming.

Ikea PS Nybygge Shelving unit

Okay, so if this doesn’t give you some amount of hope for big box retailers (of the blue and yellow kind), then I don’t know what will. Maybe we’ll all become immune to this shelving unit’s charm after walking past it a bajillion times, but presently the staggered supports and overall look have me slightly swooning. $229, folks, $229…such a reasonable price for a pretty sizable bookshelf.
