Not institutional. The Golden Time Cupboard by Lola Lely may be designed for primary schools but it's beautiful enough for any home.
According to the designer, the Golden Time Cupboard challenges traditional notions of ownership in the classroom, reducing the perceived gap between pupil and teacher. The doors are comprised of pigeonholes that are used to showcase pupils' work and objects relevant to topics and projects in progress. This space is also storage for mundane school resources in an open and visual way that encourages ownership and accountability for pupils and lenders.
The cupboard is made of birch ply and solid maple and ships flat. See more pics here.
