Playtime with PLAY shelving units
I'm constantly running out of shelf space for my books, CDs and DVDs, not to mention wishing that it were easier to adjust my existing shelves or redecorate so that I could add new storage solutions. Which makes me think I should go the PLAY way --- a lightweight modular system that snap-fits into place without having to fuss with assembly instruction kits (the bane of my life), screwdrivers, hammers or glue.
Designed by Antoine Phelouzat of movisi, the pieces interlock together in a system similar to jigsaw puzzles. Play and click with single cubes (just 3lbs/1.4kg each) or multiple shelving units, which can be oriented to 45° or 90°. Just make sure a little brute strength is handy to wedge each piece into place.
PLAY units come in 6 colours, from stalwart white, black or silver-grey, to lively pink, blue, orange and gold-cream --- perfect for kids and adults alike. Prices start at €31.60 for single cubes and run up to €325.50 for large sets with multiple modules.
