Clopen Shelf Hides Away Valuables on the Inside
August 21st, 2012
If you’re worried about the safety of your valuables, or are just looking for some extra storage, check out the Clopen shelf by Torafu Architects. The skinny shelf contains a secret, hidden drawer that allows you to hide your valuables away from prying eyes.
Clopen is constructed from aluminum parts, but it’s made to look like it’s natural wood from the outside. They added sliced veneer to a thin structure, creating extra space between the two boards, which can be opened by not just a normal key, but a special magnetic one. Once opened, a secret 23mm thick drawer appears, so it won’t be able to store much, but passports, money, etc, can be stashed away from nosy visitors.
There’s no mention on how much it costs, but the shelf entered production last month, so it should be available soon, at least in Japan.
