Magic Boxes Shelving Looks Heavy But it's Hollow and Misleadingly Light

If you're going for an earthy aesthetic in your home, this Magic Boxes shelving system would be a great addition. The set comes with pieces in three different sizes that look like long and smooth segments of rocks.

You might be suspicious about how well such apparently heavy objects can be mounted against the wall, but a close look will reveal that they're actually made from solid cork material. Furthermore, each of these is hollow, providing you with a small chamber inside for the secret stashing of your smallest possessions.

These still organic-looking elements for Blackcork conceal their matching textured caps so that they appear reasonably raw. Rui Pereira's Magic Boxes shelving makes practical and attractive accents to contemporary spaces, working very well visually when it's installed in clusters.
