Landscapes Frames Simplify Aesthetics and the Arrangement of Objects

You don't really need a weighty walnut bookcase to store all of hardcover novels and miscellaneous possessions when these Landscapes Frames will do the trick. They offer a visual and a physical minimalism as well as endless opportunities for rearrangement.

Six square and rectangular backless cubbies in various sizes make up Tetsuo Takahashi's collection, designed to be multipurpose organizational objects to function particularly well as contained ledges and storage systems when stacked.

Made from thin strips of steel, these Landscapes Frames have been coated in a white finish to produce an understated appearance that would go practically unnoticed in most rooms. When left empty or nearly so, the shelves outline small sections of floors, skirting boards and walls and feature them subtly like poetic compositions of interior scenery.
