Costae derives its name from the Latin word costa, meaning "rib." Just as ribs in vertebrates protect internal organs and support the spine, Costae's horizontal frameworks provide support and stability for the structure of the furniture. The vertical frameworks act as the "backbone" of the furniture, extending from the base to the top. The enclosing feature of Costae provides storage and protection, while its surface serves as a functional space for personal items.
