Founder Adil Vezir makes Shelfbots in Pennsylvania out of pine sourced from sustainably managed forests. Pine doesn’t give off formaldehyde fumes the way cheaper, medium-density fiberboard and plywood can. The Shelfbot finishes are nontoxic, too.
Shelfbots are made to order; you can choose to have them arrive assembled or you can easily put them together yourself. You can also choose how to set them up; hung on a wall (straight up, sideways, or upside down) or freestanding. Either way, they put the fun in functional.
