built specifically for installation in spaces not conducive for traditional shelving, the ‘mini shelf’ is a modular space saving storage system by scott jarvie. the shelf, created for lakeland, features a variable density hexagonal reinforcement system. to integrate folding legs, it was necessary to develop a bracing method to equalize loads across the entire surface. jarvie found his answer in nature by observing various cellular structures. cell density varies in accordance with structural requirements, a similar technique as used in ‘mini shelf’.

also created for lakeland by jarvie, is the ‘corner handle’ storage container. the hand-held unit features a structurally robust off-center handle. the simple change in placement — traditionally it’s directly in the center — maximizes usable storage space. a recessed lid can be fitted on the container, on top of which additional ‘corner handle’ units can be stacked. the products are designed to work together seamlessly, and can be assembled on location without the use of tools.
