Essentially, the Klaffi Shelf lies flat against the wall until a person flips open a shelf to place books, decor or any other item on top of it, the weight of which keeps it open.

Designed by Eeva Lithovius, a Finnish interior architect, furniture designer and teacher, the Klaffi Shelf is practical and handsome. Perfect for any room in the house, the Klaffi Shelf promotes orderliness in a creative manner. Available in various finishes including natural wood and white, the shelving units also complement existing decor.
