Chuck by Natascha Harra-Frischkorn

Chuck allows to experience intermediate room, to exploit the possibilities of the elements and to design individual room. The planks of wood can be lifted separately in order to display your favorite items. Depending on the quantity when filled, the planks stretch out and the wall shelf takes on a different shape. 

The result is an intriguing interaction of flexibility and stability, a structure of waves that rise and fall which easily creates room for all of your favourite items. 

This item is available for purchase, click through to her site for more details!
