In response the the uproar about their discontinuation of EXPEDIT, IKEA released photos of the KALLAX yesterday. Like many of you mentioned in the comments, the KALLAX is a slight tweak on the beloved shelving system: a more scratch-resistant surface, slightly rounded corners, and thinner outer boards, but the same internal dimensions (see the full side-by-side image after the jump). Gizmodo applauds IKEA for the redesign, because the slimmer sides will use less wood, which is a huge sustainability move for a company that uses 1% of the world's lumber.
