Shoe Shelf

Shoes lie all over the place; shoes mean chaos. And that’s not what people want. It intrigues Sebastian Goldschmidtböing that people are always trying to order their environment. Visiting friends’ houses he would always notice shoes were lying all over the place. He went about devising a solution for the shoe chaos that would not be perfect. Goldschmidtböing: “The Shoe Shelf has seventeen bars to hang shoes on. It feels organised, even though it isn’t. It had to be a human solution, because there is no such thing as perfection, which is just as well.”
