The Potato Family design is inspired by the chestnut and potato figures we all made during our childhood.  The construction of these figures is one of the first moments in which a child experiences a material creative process. This playful way of creating something has inspired Floris Wubben for this series of shelving units. One can see it expressed in many details of the design as, for instance, the position of the legs and the dynamic shape of each cavity.

The shelving units are made out of wood as it is a material that offers many creative possibilities, just like chestnuts and potatoes does for children. Regarding the materials, Dutch Fir tree wood was used for the shapes and the legs were made of polished stainless steel. The shelving units were constructed in collaboration with artist Bauke Fokkema. [Photos and information received via e-mail from Studio Floris Wubben ]

Bet you never expected this! Another example featured on Giddy Upcycled shows an armoire transformed into a big, beautiful birdcage for live birds. Of course, the glass is replaced again with more appropriate cage-like netting. Neat idea if you want to show off your feathery friends in style.

You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead. Ever Evolving Life 4-5 shows the complete transformation this armoire went through to become a cute little coffee bar.
