The Exedra Shelf by Stefan Hepner is Made for Cherished Belongings

The Exedra Shelf is inspired by the semicircular recesses or plinthes often found in ancient architecture that was used as shrines to the gods. A smaller version, it is mounted on the wall to provide a special place for cherished belongings, whether they have spiritual meaning or not to the person who placed them there.

Created by industrial designer Stefan Hepner, the Exedra Shelf also happens to resemble a mini ice cave. The white exterior and blue interior has a cool aesthetic that brings those structures to mind. Not to mention that the crumbled look could easily be construed as the natural formation of snow. Made out of reinforced white resin, the Exedra Shelf is lightweight but sturdy enough to hold precious items.
