We're always excited to discover young, talented designers with an eye toward creative reuse. Polish design group Kompott transform humble, elementary objects such as wooden crates and ladders into functional furniture and modular storage solutions.
We're particularly taken with the Ladder Set, an expandable freestanding wall unit that can be customized for any space. Although it's not yet available for sale in the U.S., a similar unit could be constructed using ladders and simple wall cabinets like IKEA's Aspvik cabinet. With such artful ideas, it's no wonder Kompott was awarded first prize in Poland's Young Design competition earlier this year. See more of their designs on their site: www.lovekompott.com.
