Wood sloping shelves system by Konstantin Grcic
Who said shelves shouldn't wobble!? Es is proud of its urge to move around, and still it works. Es is everything: clothes rack, key box, towel rack, wine store, file or book shelf, storage cabinet or newspaper stand — Es is simply wonderful! Es, for the joy of wobbling.
