High/Low: Stacked Shelving System, Muuto vs. Urban Outfitters Edition

Muuto Stacked Shelving System 1

It’s been 10 years since Muuto introduced its whimsical and highly versatile Stacked Shelving System, designed by Julien De Smedt of JDS Architects. Since then, new colors have been added, as have new accessories like sound-absorbing panels (in 2016) and a podium base (in 2012). Also on the market now: a knockoff of the stacked cubby look from Urban Outfitters.

Above: You can find Muuto Stacked Shelving System units at DWR or Danish Design Store. Think of the units as building blocks with which to construct your ideal storage solution. They come in a multitude of colors and are available with or without a door or a backboard, both of which are also offered in a range of colors. Prices start at $139 for the small open white version and go up to $319 for the large walnut unit with door at DWR.
