These Brackets Come With Shelves Included

We’ve all been there: you have your hands on some lovely timber or such to fasten to your wall and put stuff on, only to find that all the brackets you can buy are dog ugly. So, designer Sylvain Willenz decided to make brackets that come with shelves included instead.
