THE INVISIBLE AVANT-GARDE WALL ORGANIZER 

Customizable wall organizer of transparent acrylic glass, a tribute to the underappreciated and therefore invisible beauty of Russian avant-garde architecture.

 

The set consists of 14 functional elements (bulb for а flower, ruler/magnetic holder for pictures, shelf with mirror surface, hooks, tape/glasses/jewelry holder,  headphones holder, transforming system for small paraphernalia, etc.), for which the shapes of window openings and other structural elements of 28 iconic avant-garde buildings designed by 47 architects (and built in 12 Russian cities) served the prototype.

 

The modular design of the organizer allows every person to fantasize and create a unique piece to suit own needs.

FUNCTIONAL ELEMENTS

A man, in my perception, is above anything that surrounds him, and I ask myself, what it takes to make him feel good. I believe that, from physiological standpoint, it is primarily a window.
