Whether it's your growing collection of miniature designer chairs or original Star Wars memorabilia (no judgments either way) that shows no signs of stopping, J1studio's simple and sturdy T.Shelf is perfect for showing it off no matter what stage of collective completion it's in. Based on the "strongest geometric shape, the triangle," Jaewon Cho, or J1, has designed a materially basic yet beautiful shelving unit that can take on any size or shape with the addition of just a few zipties and plywood triangles.
The wooden triangles are CNC milled with small holes in the corners for the zipties. The modular units are practical, but depending on your arrangement they can easily take become sculptural, occupying a small section or snaking across your wall. Every order (customizations are available) are made and shipped flat from Los Angeles. The units come in white or natural, but we like the idea of a larger shelf with different colored sections along the lines of Clara von Zweigbergk's Themis Mobile Mono.The units start at $250 for a small 'beginner' kit, and get bigger and pricier from there. J1 also makes an affordable coffee table version by placing a piece of glass on a triangular floor unit.
