It's enlightening to note that the Tipi Modular Shelving System was inspired by the the lifestyle of backpacking. The designer, Assaf Israel, came to appreciate the value of lightweight and adaptable living over the course of one year of traveling. Such discoveries helped to produce a piece of furniture that's easy to assemble, to disassemble, and to accommodate all sorts of needs in one's diverse domestic environment.
The Joynout Studio designer used solid wood and birch plywood that are produced by CNC cutting; bound ropes and just 12 screws help to hold the whole storage system together. Two teepee structures act as the vertical frame for the unit, bracing long ledges that sit around them securely with their cutout holes. The Tipi Modular Shelving System can hold baskets, plants, books and clothes, functioning as a desk, a closet or a bookcase.
