Buenos Aires duo Lucas Desimone and Matias Resich are the masterminds behind the ‘Filmantes Hanging Shelf,’ a domestic necessity for any motion picture mogul.
Capitalizing on the booming eco-friendly market, the pair has made use of abandoned film stock. Operating under the brand name 'VU35,' the Filmantes Film Shelf pairs long 35mm-wide reels with durable wood. Although VU35 intended on making the product entirely recyclable by utilizing second-hand planks, the delicate nature of the film required a more sturdy support base.
Impassioned film connoisseurs may be disheartened to learn that unfortunately, the stock displayed on the Filmantes Hanging Shelf cannot be personally chosen. However, there are several other designs in the works and as such, more remains to be seen from VU35.
