Inspired by the iconic Isokon Penguin Donkey, the Embrace storage unit by John Green for Offi is composed of two interlocking planes of bent plywood that slot together to form a storage unit/magazine rack or occasional table. The pieces can also be pulled apart to create two small tables, a laptop table, a serving tray or a bench and desk.

RooMeez by Jonti-Craft is a modular storage system comprised of four main components - plastic bins, stacking wooden pods, fronts and doors and a array of add-on kits such as hooks and shelves. The customizable options allow users to create anything from a kids play kitchen set to an integrated closet system. Fronts and doors are dual-sided and feature different colors so they can be simply flipped around to create a brand new look. To add a further personal touch the doors and fronts can be engraved with letters to create names, initials, and words.
