Happy New Year!
Are you poking around your home and office clearing out accumulations of stuff to start the new year a few pounds lighter?
We are. And we’re coveting these cool modular shelves by Belgian-Dane Julien De Smedt of JDS Architects for Muuto. Perfect (or painfully obsessive) for the indecisive designer who likes to redesign.

Julien De Smedt explains, “Our projects are humanly designed, politically engaged, financially viable, and structurally realistic.” When asked how he sees the “new Nordic” celebrated by the Danish company Muuto, De Smedt says it is “like an embrace of a southern culture with a northern rigueur.”
In three sizes and held together with strong steel clips, the shelves are the best design storage investment we’ve seen all year. Ha.
Might I recommend watching this neat video I’m now renaming, How Do I Shelve Thee? Let Me Count The Ways-?
