Dear app designers: not all shelves are wooden

Dear app designers,

Why, given a lightweight device primarily constructed of aluminium and glass designed by someone who openly acknowledges his debt to Dieter Rams, do you give us metaphorical shelves made of wood and brass?


Allow me to introduce you to the Vitsoe 606.


Pressed steel shelves, hung on steel backets. Designed by Dieter Rams. That is how to do it.

(Of course, there’s no reason for shelves at all. But, if there must be shelves, at least let them be austerely modernist.)
