Chuck is a shelving system, which is stemmed from the idea to create individual flexible room for just about any object. The simple wooden wall shelf unfolds itself into a system made up of flexible wooden planks that adapts to the objects it preserves and displays. Consisting of six wooden planks with two stainless steel locking collars placed at either end, the timber bands expand and contract wedging the desired objects in between them, whereby each object slightly changes the behavior of the shelving system.
