Planning to get organized in 2016? Well, we have a quirky storage solution that might help you get started. Taking inspiration from retro tennis aesthetics, Matchpoint acts like a wall’s second skin. It’s a place to hang anything from fruits to pens and even holds little hooks and shelves. Designed by Studio Balagan, the airy net structure will help you organize the flood of knick knacks you’ve been meaning to go through.
We previously featured the German-Israeli firm’s Pile, which is a stackable space-saving furniture set for relaxation and conversation on the floor. Studio Balagan, which in Hebrew means “disorder” or “chaos,” is a collaboration between Karl Frederik Scholz, who studied graphic design in Germany, and Michal Blutrich, who became an industrial designer in Israel.
One of the studio’s strongest working concepts is their exploration of the relationship we have with objects, especially with furniture, and how they should fit with our modern, busy lives.
Developed and produced for the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Matchpoint is perfect to have near the entryway.
The designers explain that its shape refers “to the look of a tennis racket.” It features an airy steel frame in a retro mint green shade and an elastic net structure that holds anything you want (watch this video to see how they weave it). The whole thing stands on two cute dissimilar legs.
Matchpoint offers a substitution wall that can be hung with items, to store and organize, but could also work as a room divider, bringing tennis out of the court and into your home.
