Whether you need to move furniture around your place or are just too lazy to use a tape measure, flexible storage is very useful — like this set of shelves, that can double in size with a simple tug.
Created by Nendo, the Nest Shelf is a versatile piece of furniture: collapsed there are three simple full-width shelves; extended there six of the same; and in between there are nine, which change width depending on the space it fills.
If you’re thinking it would be a pain to extend, the designers beat you to it: the whole thing is made to be strong but incredibly light, in order to make it easy to use. The vertical sections are built from 3.7 mm thick carbon fibre; the horizontal divisions from aramid fibre honeycomb sandwiched between carbon fibre. Then, it’s all covered in a thin larch veneer.
