Linda from Leipzig talking about her CD and DVD shelf.
“Design – so I don’t get tired of watching and listening.”
The world of media is continually changing. While some are trying to decide between using an e-reader and reading a good old-fashioned book, others are collecting their music on playlists and CDs at the same time. The Cubit team has a solution for all forms of entertainment. For Linda, whom we met in Leipzig, it was important to find the right shelf for her CDs and DVDs. “I was never really struck by ready-made solutions. They were just too static. I was looking for a modular system that can do more: grow, for instance. I’m constantly adding new DVDs,” explains the gym teacher. But she also likes watching movies every once in a while and has to record competitions and training simulations for her classes and advanced training sessions.
Expandable: CD and DVD shelves from Cubit
Linda was so inspired by the modular shelving system that she ended up arranging her CD and DVD shelves into a little work of art. To this end, she’s got a long, slim tower snaking up her wall. All the modules were connected using the practical connector system and, from a height of 1.50 meters, were attached to the wall using clamps. Linda freely scatters the CD and DVD modules she added later on all over the wall. While doing so, she mixes CD shelves with DVD shelves. And plays around with the colors.
Colors can be used for coding purposes on CD or DVD shelf units
Many of Linda’s friends and family have caught the Cubit bug. One of her colleagues even discovered the Cubit shelving system for himself. He’s much more of a purist when it comes to design. His media is sorted in both a CD shelf unit and a DVD shelf unit. His color of choice: white. Which creates a very calm vibe. He added modules with drawers in a straight line. This is where he keeps useful utensils, such as his dust cloth, remote control or cables. And with all the potential arrangements, the pair of them are already designing a book shelf to match the CD and DVD shelves, both in a visual and in a functional sense.
