The Rotating-Glass Shelf by Nendo is a visually striking piece of furniture that is as different as they come. It boasts a set of transparent glass vinyl record-like discs that serve in place of traditional doors. Overlapping to create more opaque divisions, the discs add a whimsically artistic touch to the overall design that many will either love or hate.

Part of the Japanese design studio's Glassworks exhibition held at the Dilmos Gallery in Milan, Italy, the Rotating-Glass Shelf by Nendo is definitely one of the more eye-catching designs showcased. Inspired by the “the historical practice of cutting sheet glass from glass discs," according to Design Milk, the bubbles and depressions left of the surface not only provides better privacy, it also lends a handmade effect. They can be shifted via the holes in the middle.
