‘beaugars’ by meike langer

‘beaugars’, the work of german designer meike langer, features two reconfigurable storage racks set flexibly into a small table. on exhibition at imm cologne 2011, the device provides an easily adaptable means of addressing changes in day-to-day storage needs.

the device is composed of two racks of different heights, secured into a small table. the connecting brackets rotate 360° to permit each rack to be arranged at any angle relative to the other components. this configurability, combined with the freedom of use offered by ‘beaugars”s minimalist form, lets the device adapt easily to both different environments and the varying space needs of the objects being stored.

  • Place some smelly old sneakers to the promo pics instead of ballerina shoes to see the real deal 😀

  • This is like the work of artist Nairy Baghramian… Maybe they are friends.

  • as gimmy said its not sound to just compare and pin point artists who get inspired by others .. i see it a lot in all design blogs .. this is how we evolve at the end .. inspiration is a great driver 🙂

  • No where even close to being the same. If we were to make such broad ridiculous comparisons, I could easily say wow Tomas Alonso looks just like RBW, which in turn is exactly like …., etc. etc. riiiiiidiculous.

  • Chic and beautiful

  • i see what you mean. same, same, but different.

  • eh, that’s two words..

  • one word ….. tomas alonso….
