Stilleven by Valentin Garal, a Madrilenian designer based in Mexico City, is more than a ladder-like shelving unit, which it will first appear to some. The top portion acts more like a display case that will bring to mind old-school cabinets of curiosities that have been popping up again. Yet the ledge below provides a practical space the designer encourages to be used as a wall desk.

Attached to the side of Stilleven by Valentin Garal is mirror that is both functional and decorative. Created for Peca, it will particularly appeal to those who like to collect and exhibit. As put forth by the designer, "[I]ts wool display can highlight that which we treasure under the clear protection of a glass covering, while a small desk made out of walnut allows us to take a break from our day-to-day in order to catalogue the contents of the mind; the reflections on the mirror are a reminder of our surroundings.
