Sensational Storage

Storage is one of life’s necessities. We all need somewhere to put our stuff. Traditional storage includes chests of drawers, wardrobes, bookcases, cupboards, shelves and ottomans. These practical pieces are often bulky and square — and have had the same designs for centuries. Putting your stuff away doesn’t need to be boring. Here’s a collection of storage options that will blow your mind.

Dangling Boxes

Half modular shelf, half sculpture Box 1-7 consists of seven boxes of different sizes. The boxes dangle on natural leather ropes from a single nail in the wall. This intuitive way to store and display your items creates a sense of weightlessness and fluidity. (HK$3,500)

Bendy Shelving

Why place when you can chuck? Chuck, by German designer Natascha Harra-Frischkorn, is a shelf with a few tricks up its sleeve. At first it looks like a single-plank shelf but it is actually made up of multiple layers of thin, bendy pieces, allowing you to insert items at will. As you do this, the unique storage solution splays into a beautiful leaf, containing and displaying all your worldly wares. (Price upon request)
