Living efficiently in a studio apartment has many challenges, but one of the biggest gripes, especially for women, is where to stock all those clothes. If your home lacks a Carrie Bradshaw-esque walk-in closet, these custom-made pieces by architect Sigurd Larsen may work wonders. They take inspiration from the wooden shipping crates typically used to transport or store large, heavy or awkward items, and can also double as attractive room dividers.
We all have those precious items that we want to keep safe — grandpa’s watch, a childhood diary, a stash of foreign money — but in cramped apartments it’s hard to find adequate space to stash them all. Sigurd Larsen‘s cubic cabinet called the Shrine, however, has plenty of compartments to keep valuables safe. It’s simply a wooden box full of drawers and doors of varying sizes that are only accessible with keys.
