William Warren - Shelves For Life
According to designer William Warren, "Shelves For Life is a self-initiated project to further explore ideas of built-in sentimentality within our possessions. The aim is to make stronger emotional relationships with our belongings and encourage life-long use."
The concept seems interesting, but a little morbid. I like that the shelves are custom built for the person's measurements, but those are not likely going to be the same measurements as when the person dies (I hope). Also, the likelyhood of a person actually keeping or enjoying the shelves for their entire lifetime seems unlikely, although that is the point of the shelves and their design in the first place.
