From the time you first lay your eyes on this exquisite piece of furniture, you know that it will definitely remain in your memory as a unique storage device. The Perceptor Cabinet was born out of the designer’s desire to build something magnificent that combines graphic and illusory details into a creative piece of furniture. The collaboration between Dutch interior designer Tieme Rietveld and image makers Codex Inferno gave birth to the stunning cabinet – an artistic interpretation of modern furniture, designed to blur the lines between the real shape of the cabinet and the painted details. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it is handmade and hand-sprayed, evoking a world at the boundary between real and imaginary. Playfully displaying its artistic side, the Perceptor Cabinet is priced at € 7,999 and is available in a “first come, first served” scenario.
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
An antique armoire can bring a sense of timeless elegance to any home, but not everyone can find a proper use for one — not to mention sufficient space too! In the old days they were used to store clothing and linens back when bedrooms didn’t have closets, and today some people use them to hold their televisions — but that trend perhaps isn’t as big of a deal as it once was now that TV screens are so flat and compact. You just need to have a look around at all your stuff and see what needs a storage area of its own! Here are some great ideas that might pique your interest.
