TSWS / Multipurpose shelf


TSWS stands for Triangle-shaped shelf With a spinning joint. Blocks are simple toys for children, but through recombination they can become new shapes and forms. This is a multi-purpose rack, derived from this notion. To overcome the limitations of the 2 dimensional blocks, the element of rotation has been added.
In our surroundings, we can easily see spaces that can not be utilized.
Among those spaces, the triangle and trapezoid rack has been designed to use the area under staircases. Realizing the idea of transformation, this rack can be assembled at will, and through rotation and reassembly can become a desk, a chair, and a bed.
