Meo Shelf by Olivier Desrochers

The Meo Shelf by Montreal based designer Olivier Desrochers is a beautiful modular shelving system that makes use of gravity and set screws to create an elegant and simple storage solution. The simple metal brackets slide onto over sized, thick slabs of solid oak.

The unique angle built into the brackets causes them to grip tightly onto the planks, with added security coming from the set screws. The brackets come in a variety of colors and the system can be built to suit your needs.

Parks of The World Infographic by designer Mikell Fine Iles

I love this beautiful infographic, Parks of the World, by Brooklyn, NY based designer Mikell Fine Iles but I am a little disappointed that Fairmount Park in Philadelphia didn’t make the cut. The infographic charts out the size, shape, orientation on the map (relative to north), annual visitors and the parks date of inception in an elegant & colorful, easy-to-read way.

Designed for Arco, the desk features an elegant solution to small spaces and cluttered surfaces. When open, DeskBox provides ample space to work on a laptop, with built in storage and cord management, but with a simple lift of the surface, the desk closes, hiding it all away cleanly.

Ant House by mA-Style Architecture

The Ant House by Shizuoka, Japan based firm mA-Style Architecture is a beautifully simple single family residence built in Omaezaki, Japan. The small dwelling is elegantly laid out, with a “adult” side and a “kids” side separated by a common living area.

This minimal house is just as minimally finished, with natural plywood walls & surfaces, and a stark dark grey exterior. The layout of the house maximizes the living space by building the storage into the structure. Images © kai nakamura
