Peliship is a minimalist design created by New York-based designer David Hsu. Originally developed to make use of scrap wood from other projects, Peliships are wall-mounted ledges designed for those of us who have rid ourselves of physical books and magazines in favor of digital media, leaving behind objects that remind us of who we are and where we have been. Inspired by water vessels, a closer look at the wood grain one might imagine barnacles or lines of water ripples. Some have also said a wall of Peliships look like a flock of pelicans carrying our precious cargo and hence its given name. Currently handmade in Brooklyn, Each Peliship is unique and is available in solid walnut or maple, small, medium or large, point in either direction, and with or without felt lining for Elkamii’s pots.
