Shoe Racks are often given the least importance among most other furniture. Also, most of the time we see that shoes racks are designed in a way that the shoes cannot be seen. They usually have doors/ shutters or they look ugly. So how is it that we can make an open shoe rack that still looks beautiful? This is the question I asked myself while designing this very simple but pretty shoe rack.
Shoes these days are sometimes so beautifully designed, that people want to showcase them. I wanted to design a shoe rack with which people could display their shoes.
Many a times, people feel lazy to open the door to a shoe rack and remove or put back their shoes. This is another reson that led me to design an open shoe rack.
The design of the shoe rack is a derivation of a tree and its branches.
Since the branches that hold the shoes are at an angle to the vertical support, the biggest challenge was to cut the slits for these branches. Even a slight difference in this angle would affect the look and feel of the shoe rack.
