Smith Storage Unit is the perfect storing solution for home offices. Although the modern storage space can hold books, folders, magazines or any other items, it best suites a working person’s need for mobility. Awarded the 2011 Compasso d’Oro, this multi purpose storage unit was designed by JODR (Jonathan Olivares Design Research). Fueled by the passion of understanding human needs in different situations, JODR designed the Smith Storage Unit “for the overlapping interests of the home and office.” The versatile storage space can easily turn into a furniture piece – a stool or even a side table – helping you do your job and enjoying a well-designed object at the same time. The designer explains his product’s details: “Attaching itself to tables, Smith helps convert a dining room into a temporary workspace. The design can also be used as a stool or side table, and its tapered proportion allows it to be stacked and placed out of the way. Smith is a flexible hybrid that allows its user to define its end purpose.” Scroll down to see a short video of this intelligent storing solution and don’t forget to let us know what you think about it.
