The Cube is a collapsible shelving system that has 3 parts. When closed, it is like a cube. It is self-stood with 8 pairs of countersunk screws and nuts easily and quickly. It can be both hanged against the wall and used on the floor. Its material is 3 mm sheet of Corian due to its extremely high strength-to-weight ratio as well as being green material. The product is produced by laser cutting, bending and welding with heating. It has holes on the side surfaces to decrease the weight. Waste parts that arise from creating these holes are used to produce bookends. Dimensions of units are determined according to allow A4 size file fit into it.
