Informal Storage: Wood Slat Wall Inspired by Safari Vests

We spend time and money trying to hide our messes, but at the end of the day, often keep track subconsciously of where all our stuff is anyway. What if we were to celebrate disorder and couple it with accessibility?

Phoebe Washburn is actually an artist, not organizer, by trade, but there are interesting lessons to be taken from this installation project.

In her case, the wall is composed of overlapping slats of found wood, given it depth, dimension and just a hint of chaos – layered on top are other found objects, at once disorganized but hinting at shed pegboards and other functional storage systems.
