The people behind Brave Space Design may be nerds at heart. I say this because they have created a bamboo shelving unit inspired by the puzzle video game Tetris, whose original poster advertised it as “From Russia with Fun!” Tetrad Bamboo is the name of the geometric shelving system created by Brave Space, which uses completely modular units—putting Tetrad together is almost as fun as arranging tetriminos (for readers unfamiliar with this term, these are the four-square-block game pieces in Tetris).

Bamboo Shelving with Warm Tones and Geometric Shapes
With a solid bamboo backing, Tetrad is strong and durable. The unit can also be mounted on a wall, so it’s versatile. Besides the intoxicating shapes—sure to entertain users for years—Tetrad offers a lovely color: “The combination of the natural and amber bamboo will provide your work or live space with warm tones and a playful style.” In keeping with their commitment to using sustainable and earth-friendly products, Brave Space treats Tetrad Bamboo with an organic herbal oil and a non-toxic water-based finish.
The Tetrad Bamboo shelving unit works in any room. Use it to display your reading in a library or office—it’s a perfect perch for architecture and design books. Its whimsical forms are ideal in a kid’s room, especially to showcase jigsaw puzzles and counting books. Or use it in the kitchen to keep spices handy: Tetrad’s material and color will highlight saffron and curry, its shape will complement star anise and cloves.
