Spotted in Design Milk’s recent story about Rua Confettora, unconventional, international design shop in Brescia, Italy: a white-painted ladder used as the support for glass shelves: instant, rustic/modern chic, made from ordinary materials.

When we hunted around, we discovered that Lab::Istanbul’s had created a line of shelving based on the idea:

ladder shelving 2

Another iteration to copy or riff on.
