When enlisted to design a compact tea shop in a limited  footprint, Brazilian architect Alan Chu created a giant puzzle box whose color blocks unfold to reveal its wares. Seeing it unfold gives us lots of ideas for maximizing our own storage spaces, and making them visually appealing. With each panel that is opened, the colorful grid becomes 3D.

We love the storage shelves on the left that roll open on wheels that are masked by the colored-panel front. The deep pull-out shelf on the far right is something you’d find at Ikea.

Even its side is color blocked, to make it disappear with no sign that it is really clever storage.
