"The last page in October's edition of Dwell features architect Andrei Saltykov's American tribute and badass bookshelf. This guy lives in London, and he really likes the USA, or at least the structure of it. "...The US has lots of straight-line divisions - great for holding books." But what about the Palin state and those islands, you say. Well a shelf based on Hawaii hangs in the kid's bathroom, and Alaska is suspended in the upstairs bathroom over the tub."
Wall art that doubles as storage? Sure, why not! Epoxy-coated steel has been welded by hand to create this hanging industrial shelving piece. Imitating the familiar form of a fire escape, some of its adjustable shelves can hang down like ladders while others display plants, books, pictures, and more.
