A short note on … Wall Shelving

I came across this today. A folding Shelving system by Mark Kinsley.

The general consensus is a positive one for this innovative piece of storage, after all the basics are quite positive. Who doesn’t want a big modern art piece that conveniently folds into a shelving system?

But i see one possible flaw, and that is the visual impact once some shelves are used. Don’t you think that once you have your trinkets on the wall, as colorful as they may be, they may visually clash with the rest of the photograph?
Also convenience, if you need a shelve human nature dictates that you will need said shelving for a long time and i am pretty sure it will be very inconvenient to put down all your trinkets to show off your new toy.

Now this on the other hand – by designer Yoon-Zee Kim , is a much more stylish and multifunctional design. But maybe I am biased for i love everything multifunctional or modular.

2. Animator – I am not biased or anything, but i do believe that this career has the potential of being a dream job for someone who loves breathing life into their imagination.Like game design, we need to give people somewhere to escape to.
