The Compass Shelf Redirects Your Mess for an Orderly Interior

— October 9, 2013 — Art & Design
You could conceivably use the Compass Shelf as a proper ladder, but it's been designed more as a practical accessory than a utilitarian object first and foremost. GamFratesi presents a convenient coatrack that encourages you to arrange your garments across its rungs for a more organized indoor environment.

Through the simplification of the stepladder, the designer ended up with a playful and iconic form that came to resemble the pivoting drawing utensil that's known as a compass. This whimsical quality was enhanced with the incorporation of colorful metal circles that cover the hinges of the clothes hanger.

The Compass Shelf can be kept open or closed, self-supported or leaned against the wall. It contributes to a room as lighthearted decor and keeps your lightly-worn garments nice and breezy.
Trend Themes
1. Multi-functional Furniture - The Compass Shelf functions both as a ladder and a coat rack, showing the potential for furniture to serve multiple purposes.
2. Organizational Products - The Compass Shelf encourages users to be more organized, highlighting the demand for products that simplify storage and order.
3. Whimsical Design - The incorporation of colorful metal circles and a compass-like shape demonstrates the popularity of playful and distinctive designs.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture - The Compass Shelf provides opportunities for furniture makers to create more versatile and multi-functional pieces.
2. Home Organization - The Compass Shelf is an exemplar of the growing demand for home organization products, creating a market space for products promoting tidiness and simplicity.
3. Home Decor - The Compass Shelf's playful design addresses a demand for distinctive decorative objects in the home, offering potential for designers and retailers to stand out in the market.
