Yusuke Watanabe Parachute Wall Shelf
Parachute Wall Shelf is Golden Design Award winner in 2020 - 2021 Furniture Design Award Category.
Parachute Wall Shelf

When listening to Coldplay's first album, it suddenly occurred to the designer to look up the word parachute. It seems that the name parachute comes combining the Italian parare (to protect) with the French chute (to fall). Yusuke Watanabe thought that was a rather fine name. Yusuke Watanabe tried to think of devices that protect against falling. When in use, the plank for the section being used falls, and hangs there. Their coat, their magazine and more this protects them from falling. The sight of looking down on their parachute from up above is rather pleasing, too.
