Dishrack designed by New York based company DBA.
“A dense concentration of rods useful for holding cutlery and thin glassware fades evenly to a spacing large enough to accommodate bowls, plates and pans. A flexible mesh con- nects the posts, allowing the structure to be twisted open and rinsed. The excess water drains into a tray beneath, which can be easily emptied and cleaned. Both the main body and the tray are recycled polypropylene.”

Alphabetized Storage Space

In a world where space gets tighter every day, designers try to come up with solutions that will save space but also modify the visual aspect of a home. Modern Finnish designer Lincoln Kayiwa chose to solve storage problems with his new AAKKOSET, a room divider that also functions as a wall storage unit. Created to store books, CDs, magazines, bric-a-bracs etc, AAKKOSET comes in many colours: black, blue, green, orange, red, violet, white and yellow.
