And to think your parents were actually disappointed when you kept playing with Lego bricks all the way through high school. Little did they know that you were refining important skills that would one day let you build one hell of a shelving system with Quirky's new modular Crate system.
Admittedly, drawers and home theatres aren't as exciting as building X-wings and pirate ships, but the Crate system is finally a way for students to fight back against IKEA's rigid designs. Maybe we don't want to put the Mosjo next to the Vallvik, have you ever considered that Sweden?
Thanks to a clever design that covers the plastic containers in evenly sized and spaced holes, connectors can be used to stack them into larger creations. And other accessories like hooks, casters, cable management, and even things like whiteboards can be added to expand the functionality of your Frankenstein furniture.
There's no word on pricing for any of the Crate options just yet, but they are going into production and should be available in about three months time. In the interim, just make sure to keep toddlers and other loved ones safely away from the cinderblock and lumber leaning tower you currently keep your textbooks on. [Quirky]
