There is a time and a place for a grand and heavy bookcase, and those circumstances are not common amongst students. The Zigzag Shelf offers a clever solution to stashing tons of different things and comes in a retractable package that's lightweight and easy to move.

In its closed form, Tahsin Emre Eke's storage system is a stack of six ledges, all uniform and rectangular with mod curved corners. Brightly colored dividers are hidden between each rigid layer and become visible once the piece is pulled open. Crossed metal braces at the back of the Zigzag Shelf separate as you create a taller bookshelf. Pivoting latches help to fix the ledge spacing according to the user's preferred height.
