Flickr Finds: Poketo's Second Hotel Shelving in Seoul

Here's a pretty simple shelving system in Second Hotel, a design boutique in Seoul. After our initial reaction of, "Oohh, I hope no one stumbles against this wall...that would be baaad....," we tried to think of things that couldn't be displayed with this system...

The only thing that we came up with was artwork, although it could be adhered to the ends of some of the pegs. Some things that this wall of wooden pegs can hold: horizontal stacks of books, keys, coats, spools, etc. You could even lay a board across a few of the pegs and to display small photos and tchotchkes (and then promptly dismantle it if it looked terrible). This could be an ideal solution (on a much smaller scale!) in a home office or even an entryway.
