The Noma Shelf looks like your average floating wall shelf, yet it hides an element of mystery and flexibility that you won't notice unless you use it to its full potential. The oak wood ledge is perfect for the placement of frequently used items or objects that you wish to display, yet the piece incorporates a hidden storage compartment for stashing all sorts of interesting -- and uninteresting -- things.

Zak Stratfold designed a small shelving unit that can be drawn away from the wall like a drawer. You'll discover a shallow compartment in which you may place an assortment of possessions. Once you start to fill it up, you'll observe that the base of the Noma Shelf is a stretchy lycra material. This begins to sag below the rigid edge of the timber to shape an unusual and irregular form.
