Dutch designer Floris Wubben is known for his mixture of modern and natural designs and the latest is Potato Family, a collection of shelving units that resemble potatoes.

The design was inspired by childhood figures that kids made out of chestnuts and potatoes. (Remember making those by jabbing toothpicks into the potato for the arms and legs?) The playfulness of that activity comes through with things like how the polished stainless steel legs are positioned and the skewed shape of each shelving cavity.

The Potato Family was constructed in collaboration with artist Bauke Fokkema.

I love how the texture of the Dutch Fir wood mimics that of a peeled potato.
