As living quarters are becoming smaller, customizable furniture like modular shelving systems, for example, are popping up as viable options for consumers who want to be in charge of their space. Iron Hive is one such offering which was developed by Davide Mezzasalma who looked toward the arrangement of beehives for inspiration. As a result, this is one of the more design-friendly modular shelving systems on the market.
The adaptable offering is made available to individuals in polygonal modules that can be easily reconfigured to fit the limitations and requirements of any space. Moreover, the silhouettes of the units are made so that they can be multi-functional. For example, "one cube can be a side table," while adding more can eventually get you to "a sideboard, room divider, or shelving."
