editor's obsession: maroma.
September 26, 2011
No one likes a good bookshelf more than I do; I’m still holding out for a secluded study lined with them. Lately, though, I’ve been a little discouraged with the lack of options available: They’re all made up of two vertically running parallel posts bisected by a series of perpendicular lines. But while I like the idea of the books that line the shelves providing all the visual interest, I don’t think it’s fair that the lumbering behemoths that house them get a free pass, which is why I got so excited when I saw this little number at Pirwi. Created by Daniel Romero, the Maroma provides an eclectic, fun solution to my design dilemma, with rotating cubes that allow for stacking and building for a host of different configurations. It’s not exactly the prince charming I was hoping for, but I guess, a happy ending nonetheless.
