custom wedding gifts Chic Plastic Wall Storage from 1971 and Now geometric cushion covers
Recently， we stumbled on an image of UTEN.SILO (also known as the Wall All)， the very stylish wall storage Dorothee Becker designed for Ingo Maurer in 1960s， almost half a century ago. Wouldn’；t THAT be cool to have？ we thought. No long after， we found Urbiocustom wedding gifts， a new？play on the essential idea？and wondered if it is really true that there are no new ideas， but rather， discoveries of the same things over and over.Whereas Becker’；s storage components clipp onto its plastic wall， Urbio’；s is affixed by magnets. It’；s being marketed as planters， but we’；re thinking that it would make great Becker-ish storage for all sorts of things to efficiently organize a kitchen or workspace.？personalized new baby gifts
We love the story behind Beckers iconic design， all of which you can read here. Becker， who never trained as a designer， describes her inspiration：
My father owned a drugstore and photo shop in Aschaffenburg. When I was a child there were countless drawers there full of fascinating things waiting to be discovered， including a hang-up toilet bag made of waxed cloth full of pockets for the various toiletries. The bag held items which would normally have been stored vertically in a horizontal position. I never forgot this practical idea and later used it in UTEN.SILO.
You can still buy the Uten.Silo Storage System ， above， as well as versions in red and black. And the？Urbio Wall System？is widely available in kits， or separate parts， so you can customize it to your space and needs. Pricewise， it seems to be on a par with or possibly more expensive than UTEN.SILO. ？Which you choose depends on the look you prefer， and the flexibility you need.

One of the big surprises in our renovation of ‘the improvised life’s laboratory was the floor. When we took up the funky carpeting, we didn’t find the concrete we expected but a soft gypsum compound that couldn’t be hardened. We had no budget for a floor so we started to look around at possibilities. We entertained the idea of linoleum, which we love, but found even it was too pricey and labor intensive (it needs sealing periodically). Still, we found ourselves fantasizing about an orange linoleum floor. We weren’t quite able to imagine it.
