Making a Most of Wall Space, Part 2
August 29, 2014 - storage organizer
One proceed to use a walls is with a pegboard; Julia Child’s kitchen pegboard, where she hung her copper pots, is a famous example. The pegboard above, from Human | Crafted, takes this aged customary and creates it musical as good as functional. The house is CNC machined from a plain retard of walnut; a loops and hooks are 3D-printed nylon. It also comes with 5 feet of bungee cord, providing one some-more proceed to reason equipment in place.
Droog’s Strap, designed by NL Architects, is another instance of holding a informed product—in this case, a straps used to reason luggage on a behind of a bike—and doing something new with it. The straps are done from silicone rubber and can reason phones, keys, remotes, books, palm tools, etc. These would work good for finish users who work best when all is clearly visible. But for others, it will supplement manifest clutter.
The naoLoop Loft, with a polyester latex bands, follows a same ubiquitous proceed as a Strap, though with a bands trustworthy to a laser-cut immaculate steel (or powder-coated steel) board. Besides transforming a look, a house protects a walls from anything that competence get them unwashed or means other damage.

The Hanging Line from Kontextür, designed by Josh Owen, is a singular silicone band. Items are stored by tossing them over a line, or unresolved them from a hook. Although this was designed for lavatory use, end-users could positively use it other places, too. It’s rather singular in what it can hold, most some-more so than a Strap or a Loft—but it positively provides some-more storage options than a customary towel rack.
It would be tough to write about wall storage though mentioning Vitra’s Uten.Silo, designed by Dorothee Becker in 1969; a smaller chronicle came out a following year. With containers of all sorts of shapes and sizes, and some hooks, a Uten.Silo will keep a far-reaching operation of things tighten during hand, and easy to find.

Seletti’s Suburbia, from Note Design Studio, was apparently desirous by Uten.Silo. The demeanour has been altered to resemble a town, noticed from overhead; it’s also done of wood, rather than plastic. But from an organizing standpoint, what held my eye was that Note combined some shelves and a cork board, providing nonetheless some-more storage options.
The Luis Organizer from Oli13, done from MDF, has fewer, incomparable containers—so it’s good for books, notebooks, etc. However, it would be easy for smaller things like pens to get mislaid in those pockets.
The Stash, from Boon, can be used possibly on a countertop or on a wall; that’s a good bit of flexibility. (The HYVE, that we wrote about before, has rather identical flexibility.) While a Stash was designed to assistance control kid-related clutter, it can be used for most more.
All of a products I’ve mentioned so distant have one limitation: The finish user is stranded with one configuration, with no choice as to a series or distance of a containers. But designers have combined a series of particular pockets for those who wish to emanate their possess configurations—or who need (or usually have space for) a singular series of containers. CB2’s wall pockets have one drawback: a ascent hardware is visible. But functionally, they’re a winner.
Ampersand’s wallpockets are done from recycled paperboard and can be hung with wall glue or thatch nails. The wallpockets boat flat; they have integrated notches to make them easy to assemble. They’re also reversible.
We’ve mentioned a Urbio indoor straight gardening system before, though Urbio seems to have satisfied that a complement can be used for some-more than gardening. With captivating wall plates and 4 opposite polypropylene containers to go onto those plates, a Urbio complement lets finish users emanate a reduction that works best for them. And if users wish to save income and don’t need a tradition solution, they can buy one of a dual kits that Urbio provides.
The polypropylene Pocket from Normann Copenhagen, designed by Simon Legald, comes in 4 sizes and 6 colors, so it gives finish users a lot of choices. As Legald says, “The opposite sizes of Pocket meant that it can simply be blending to fit particular needs.” The Pocket comes with a shifting ascent joint that’s invisible once it’s been mounted on a wall. It can also be placed in a dishwasher, that will greatfully many finish users.
