Cantilever Interiors · Wanda Shelving System

Furniture

There’s no two ways about it, everybody loves storage. And a locally made, versatile storage system is especially hard to find.

Travis Dean and Charlie Wilde of Cantilever Interiors have designed just the one, the Wanda Shelving System, built in Brunswick. Available in different configurations, and suited for either home or work, we’re loving this sleek, customisable storage solution.

Good storage space is universally appealing. It’s one of those rare household items that almost everybody wishes they had more of.  So when a new (and locally designed) storage solution comes along, we feel it’s our duty to spread the word. ‘Wanda’ is the new storage kid on the block, or in this case, affixed to the wall. This open-floating shelving unit has been in development since 2014, designed by Travis Dean and Charlie Wilde of Melbourne based business, Cantilever Interiors.

‘Wanda has been in the making since late 2014, we like to ponder and get things perfect!’ the pair admit. The first iteration of Wanda came as a result of a hospitality job Cantilever Interiors designed for their local cafe, Padre Coffee. Their brief was to create a shelving system that was modern, slim, and customisable, which showcased instore merchandise with flair. After installing their shelving unit, the pair decided to develop it further for a domestic setting.

‘We had the idea to develop a shelving system that would offer a functional and adaptive piece of furniture to support the ever-changing storage requirements of modern life,’ says Travis.

After much prototyping, the final version of Wanda launched earlier this month. It’s available in three flexible configurations: Library, Studio and Utility. A central laminate back board is affixed to the wall, with laminate faced ply shelving available in different colours and sizes that securely interlock into the back board. ‘We wanted Wanda to have many uses, for instance it can display, hang, stack or hide pretty much anything around the home or at work’ says Charlie.

Each Wanda system is made in Cantilever Interiors’ Brunswick workshop. An important part of the design process was the system’s installation process, ‘even the severely DIY challenged can easily install Wanda!’ the pair promise!

Wanda is available for order online via Cantilever’ Interiors’ website and can be shipped Australia wide. Everything is made in Melbourne, and if pieces are not in stock they can be dispatched within a fortnight.
