Giulia Shelf by Kevin Chu Promotes Messiness Despite its Purpose to Store

The designer of this eccentric piece of furniture raises an interesting point. Why don't certain furnishings accommodate users who prefer to live amidst mess? The Giulia Shelf by Kevin Chu may suit the standard specifications of an effective storage system, but its haphazard arrangement of elliptical ledges does not exactly promote order.

Not a single surface offers a straight and level ledge for the stable placement of any possession. The chaotic configuration of curved cubbies incorporates the complex overlapping of compartments, encouraging the cluttered collection of books and other items. It is an intriguing solution for champions of organized messes, while cleverly influencing them to move everything off of the floor.

Even with its topsy-turvy structure, the Giulia Shelf by Kevin Chu manages to embody a slick appearance. The A' Design Award winning concept is made of high polish stainless steel -- with an unexpected touch of AstroTurf.
