COFFIN SHELVES: ww.modcom’s Shelves For Life
Posted By Adele Chong On September 24, 2006 @ 6:01 am In green furniture | 19 Comments
At the [Re]Design 06  exhibition in London, the hip British design team ww.modcons explore the issue of disposability with their subtly ironic Shelves for Life. The artfully assembled slats of wood begin their existence dutifully propping up books and knick-knacks, but when their time is up, instead of getting kicked to the curb, these shelves convert into a coffin!
Shelves for Life is just one of the many intriguing design items we found on display at [RE]Design – currently on at the Truman brewery on Brick Lane in London. Stay tuned for a report back later today on the rest of the show.
