Storage units such as the Kulma Shelf are becoming more and more creative. No longer are people satisfied with simple, straight lines and basic colors. Instead, they want pieces with a quirky character. Interestingly, the Kulma Shelf is exactly the former with simple lines and coloring. Yet by making it snugly fit into a corner, it becomes something completely unique and coveted.
Created by Helsinki-based industrial designer Martina Carpelan in collaboration with Hong Ngo, the Kulma Shelf is made out of oak. The designer says, "Kulma, corner in Finnish, is a shelf to be hanged either in a positive or a negative corner of a room. The idea is to utilize and highlight both the space within the shelf and the corner surrounding the shelf."
