Some of the most charming carpentry projects are constructed without the use of any hardware. Pieces such as the Tuberack Shelf can be appreciated for their softness, their unique structures and their flexibility. This eccentric object has been assembled of carefully cut and sanded oak wood and keeps from falling apart thanks to a few sets of tightly-wound rubber tubes.

The two vertical boards support six level ledges, slotted together simply with a system of channels and notches. To keep each element snugly in place, elastic straps bind the bottom, top and middle of the furnishing, seemingly rendering three cubbies unusable. But actually, Joeri Reynaert's Tuberack Shelf offers the opportunity to tuck your possessions away by more playful and creative means.
