TwentyTwentyOne

TwentyTwentyOne has so many innovative and interesting designs, it's hard to pick favorites over there. I'm voting for the ladrillos, with its whimsical shelving units designed by Javier Mariscal. It's a fresh and terrific example of functional design that can also be very young and fun, playful. I like that these can be stacked in any arrangement, each shelf has the option of using 8 different styles of shelf supports.

Over at The Design Blog this morning, I found another twentytwentyone table that I'm crazy about, the penquin donkey. Great design. Stores magazines, up to 80 books, super attractive, great curves, all in a sturdy birch. There's also the penguin donkey3 with a smooth flat top, which would be a better choice if you're shopping around for a table that you can arrange things on top of -- rest a beverage, place a vase of perky tulips, etc. This table wasn't built to store books, but CDs, instead. I think the perfect table would be the penquin donkey3 with the same storage capacity for books as the original model, but that's just my opinion. I have wayyyy too many CDs and I tend to store them together, alphabetically, so I wouldn't want to split them up by storing a few in some random table.

Both are available at TwentyTwentyOne. Such a great place for super slick furnishings that serve an actual purpose other than simply looking good. Kinda like you, huh kiddo?
