Most of us buy shelves so that we have a nice place to display and grow our collections, whether they’re of books or wine glasses or some other fancy. We need the furniture to be readily adjustable to our needs as time goes on, something the German industrial designer Steffen Kehrle clearly understands.

Kehrle’s new Anything Shelves are toothed with a zigzag pattern, a geometric detail that pleases the eye and makes the shelves easy to customize and revise. Made of ash wood, the units are sturdy enough to be moved around and stand alone or against a wall. Attractive as well, the furnishing comes with a naturally finished or colorfully painted back panel. The sharp design is produced by and available upon from the Italian company L’abbate.
