Props for Order

Sorting things and reorganising them is as natural as birds
collecting and assembling sticks to make their nests. But sometimes
we can get hung up on the act of establishing order. It
can become an obsession. With ‘Props for Order’ Hayo Gebauer
aims to show the beauty of such behaviour.
Instead of hiding our storage systems away like a dirty habit,
these objects are designed to use in plain sight, for all to admire.
The ribbed surfaces accommodate a whole range of household
objects and the set can be combined and stacked according
to individual tastes. Whether to help keep a workplace tidy
or to compulsively arrange individual strands of spaghetti, it’s
up to the user.
