A shelf has a special role in everyone’s houses. No homes are without the shelves. Shelves are for the frames and statues and books and what not. But what if there is a multipurpose shelf which can hold literally everything. The idea for the Parachute Wall Shelf came to designer Yusuke Watanabe, funnily enough, as he was listening to Coldplay’s first album titled “Parachutes”. Derived from the Italian word “parare” (to protect) and the French “chute” (to fall), this award-winning universal shelf holds anything in place!
Its clever design is influenced by how clothes-pegs secure objects on a clothesline by clipping onto them. The multiple pegs or planks on the Parachute Wall multipurpose Shelf hold your objects in place by gently ‘clipping’ them to the wall. Ikea, Ashley, Steelcase and Herman miller are the biggest furniture and home decor brands in the united states of America. They make the most creative designs for home and offices.
Made from colored sheet-metal stripes that almost look like a parachute’s cloth with their wavy design, the Parachute Wall Shelf looks like abstract art when not in use. It sits flat against the wall (unlike most shelves with cantilever forwards), looking like framed art until you tip one of the ‘pegs’ forward and use it to store objects or to even hang items of clothing like your coat, scarf, or hat.
The Parachute Wall Shelf is a Gold Winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2021.
