Tetris-like stacking + LEGOish shelves: modular minimalist furniture (BrickBox)

BrickBox are modular shelves/boxes that can be stacked like bricks- or LEGOS- and fit into any sized apartment, even in tough spots like under the stairs. Stacked high enough, they can create a wall and divide an apartment or office into separate spaces, or even rooms.

Industrial designer Antxon Salvador came up with the idea while writing a book on Spanish cinema 11 years ago. As he bought more and more books and dvds for research, he had an ever-expanding need for shelving. He couldn't find a high quality modular shelving system so he decided to create one and BrickBox was born.
Given his nomadic nature, Salvador created shelves that individually serve as boxes for moving and storage, but together they can be stacked and interlocked to create custom-sized shelving without the need of any screws. He also created the option to add wheels and create mobile shelving or even a rolling coffee table.

Since the "boxes" are made from high quality laminated birch plywood, they are sturdy so shelves can be stacked high enough to create a wall, or to create load-bearing furniture like chairs, benches and tables.

Each individual BrickBox can be flat-packed for easy storage (when your shelving needs diminish). There are 2 sizes: the large box (36 x 27 x 54 centimeters) and small (36 x 27 x 27 centimeters). Currently, they are only for sale in Europe (at €39.95 for the large and €29.95 for the small), but Salvador and his business partner Roger Zanni are currently looking for a U.S. distributor.
