Inspired by a sole beetle roaming the sandy shore, designer from True Latvia made this unusual closet. In close-status, the closet can be perceived as an ode to the beetle, which serves perfectly as a focal point of discussions among your guests. When it is opened, it has extraordinary functionality in the form of re-customizeable shelves, cubbies, drawers, and even a few hidden compartments for storing all sorts of items. Moreover, the layout of the shelves can also be changed to better suit your personal needs. It might be not one kind of piece we like, but we have to admit, the combination of the functional and visual elements make the BUG a piece of art, rather than just a piece of furniture. [source]
Inspired by animals and their shapes, Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba designed a trio of playful animal-shaped storage units – called “Sending Animals”. Made from wooden shipping crates, these ingenious storage units can fit in any room and easily become a serious conversation starter. Looking like the silhouettes of 3 crated farm animals– a goose, pig and cow, these open up to compartmentalized storage that is fun to arrange your goods in and put the furniture on display for all to see.
