Brilliant and simple design for a shelf by LAIN, based in Spain.
LAIN is composed of only 3 shelves and 4 rods and 12 safety stops. This developed using an anchoring system based on the tensions exerted on the parts, avoiding additional fixing elements such as screws or adhesives and use of assembly tools.
Its packaging is part of the assembly process making it more comfortable and intuitive.
The materials used are totally respectful of the environment.

My pal Jessa Blades put me on to the lovely online pop-up shop, QUITOKEETO. It’s a lovely place to visit and has an interesting business model. They pop-up with a few select items for sale every “now and then, when the stars align, and the products are just right.” Their shop will feature any assortment of personal or home goods, all carefully chosen by owners Heidi Swanson (of cooking fame) and Wayne Bremser. Sign up for their newsletter to be informed when new releases are announced. Great place to look for one special gift.
Here are a few of the current treasures available. Above Midori Brass Pen Case ($67). Below, Brass Ballerina Bowl ($65), Young Cedar Chopsticks ($55) and Frazer Parfume Solide Rose & Tuberose ($68).
