This clever Japanese shoji panel closet runs along an entire 20-foot wall and has no side panels, so there’s plenty of room for clothes, a home theater, boxes, household goods and more. It was designed by Hanson Hsu of Delta H Design Inc., who used natural tone basswood with “Synskin” as a new technology substitute for delicate paper. The classic shoji design allows a beautiful contrast to the exposed wood trusses and concrete floors of the modern residential structure.
