The Art of the Grid Shelving Units and Notepads are based on the layout grids of famous publications. These grids played a historic role in the development of design systems and cover a wide spectrum of classic and contemporary editorial design. The Shelving Units are the 3D offspring of the Notepads and take the notepads a step further by storing the books and magazines created with these same grids. The shelving units celebrate the notion of the grid in its purest form. Grids are both useful and beautiful. “Designer Astrid Stavro’s grid-inspired shelving units are lessons in thinking outside the box.”—Wallpaper* See also Print
