Stacked Chair Storage

The Latten Shelving Unit Employs One Type of Piece for Another Purpose

— June 1, 2012 — Art & Design
Many people gradually find uses for their furnishings that weren't necessarily the intended purposes. Just take a look at this Latten Shelving Unit! It's made almost entirely out of task chairs, yet here it performs effectively and endearingly as a storage system.

The idea has come from the 2modern blog as a crafty way to arrange the simple wooden Latten chairs designed by Max and Hannes Gumpp. The clever endeavor involves access to a surplus of as few as four seats, some colorfully painted beams and a pack of zip-ties to bind the components together.

The aim is not to harm the pine perches, so to offer the option of dismantling the Latten Shelving Unit and using them as desk chairs and dining chairs in future. These impressive examples feature 18 stacked seats and 14 vibrant beams for the creation of tall open cubbies for your miscellaneous possessions.
