Nest Shelf is a minimalist design created by Tokyo-based Nendo. The shelving can extend to twice its width by a second shelf of the same size embedded within the main unit. The vertical components are constructed of 3.7mm carbon fiber, while the horizontal sections consist of an aramid fiber-made honeycomb material sandwiched between the carbon fiber.
Both vertical and horizontal components are coated with a larch veneer that results in a 4.8mm total thickness for the shelving, and 9.6mm thickness for the outer shelving. The 25.6″ width of the shelf’s fully-collapsed state doubles to 51.2″ when the shelf is fully extended outward, allowing the user the flexibility to choose a width appropriate for the space available.
In addition, the user can create various grid sizes depending on how little or how much the shelf is extended. One example includes having a large middle section with smaller boxes on the sides. Another can consist of having a smaller middle section with larger sides.
