The Niko is a Dextrous Storage Solution for Compact Spaces

By: Amelia Roblin - Published: • References: adesignaward
One might find that the Niko Rotating Planes shelf would be wonderfully handy in several different rooms of the home -- an observation that captures the versatility of this unique storage unit. The piece offers three small compartments in its base and flat surface on top so that you can arrange a variety of items.

What makes Lorenzo Quaglietta's creation so special -- and what won it an A'Design Award -- is its clever pivoting arms that cause the lengthy ledge to fold. The two halves can swivel inwards so that they're parallel to the wall on which the unit is mounted. You'll see that Niko Rotating Planes can function as a bar and even a tiny, cantilevered kitchen table. Stats for Two-Armed Triangular Shelves Trending: Older & Mild
