How do we arrange things in Zero-G environment?

Storing objects requires the creation of  a single spatial system and allowing those objects to occupy that system. A container box which has a guideline for international uses is the example. Despite the different forms and scales of the shipping objects, they are packaged in a single module and can be delivered easily. Without the regulated system when we arrange or store things, we will be overwhelmed by them and occupants would be replaced by the products.

There are several ways to arrange objects. We stack, hang, or put the objects in boxes when we rarely use them. These ways are, of course, related to the gravity which is the nature in the earth. Shelves are at the height where we can reach easily, heavy things should be at the bottom of the storage, and clothes can be hung on the hanging bar. In this project, the way we store and utilize the various products we need in in Zero-G environment was explored. Which form of the spatial system can be adjusted, and how can the storage system itself occupy the space?
