It might not be as heartbreaking as saying goodbye to a pet, but no one wants to see their plants die — it's a sign of failure.

There's a case to be made — recently by designer Martino Gamper (and me) — that shelving is the most personal piece of furniture you own; a functional place to store your stuff that also puts it on display, like you're curating own little curio exhibition.

I don't often have emotional reactions to shelving units, but cripes — these pics from Design is a State of Mind, a new exhibition at London's Serpentine Sackler Gallery, are just about perfect. Storage systems are often stuck in the shadow of the stuff they're displaying, but, here, a handful of perfect specimens get the spotlight they deserve.
