Simple plywood boxes can act as shelving, a room divider or even a coffee table - all held together by a system of standard foldback clips. No tools required.

Container System 1530

Designed by Daniel Gafner for Postfossil, the Container System 1530 is a series of container elements made from French sea pine plywood. The plywood's marbled effect works well as a moiré pattern, especially interesting when horizontals are contrasted with verticals.

The profiled edges allow the containers to be linked by the clips.

The boxes come in four formats, all based on a grid of 15 cm and 30 cm (hence the name); mix and match in any order or quantity for custom shelving. There is a base element that keeps the system farther away from dust and dirt. Set on an angle, the storage system offers a new perspective.

Valet

Anna Blattert's bent wood Valet is an elegant clothes rack that folds up. Made of oiled nutwood or ash, Valet is designed to air out clothing in order to keep it from being laundered excessively, thereby saving energy.
