When I was about thirteen I had a bright yellow record bag that I’d lovingly (and laboriously) decorated with all the logos of my favourite bands. I worked on its design for months, building on it in class, at home and whenever else I could spare the time to paint on another slogan. Needless to say I can still render Rage Against the Machine in acrylic with swift and accurate precision to this day. In short, I was always a lover of customisation.
Though I wear fewer band names about my person nowadays I still appreciate being able to manipulate day to day objects to fit my own needs and am pretty enthralled with Viktormatic’s WWW shelving units. Constructed from a simple hexagonal wooden frame, the units’ shelves are made from adjustable lengths of rope allowing them to be moved according to the requirements of their owner. Mostly an owner of huge coffee-table books? Not a problem, just slide that top shelf up a bit. All it’s missing is some lovingly-carved band names, but you can probably just add those yourself.
