“Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things” Will Satisfy Your Over-Developed Sense Of Order

This Tumblr does exactly what it says, thus scratching an existential itch.

Maybe it’s part of our biological imperative, but there’s something rather satisfying in seeing interlocking parts. Coming across a perfect spatial match in the wild, though, is too often restricted to chance encounters with Russian nesting dolls, so it’s about time there was a blog devoted solely to Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things.


Years ago, the Things Organized Neatly Tumblr made a splash by giving control-obsessed types a daily fix of order. Now, Things Fitting Perfectly provides a similar comfort by showing objects neatly organized into each other. Unlike the Russian nesting dolls, though, these objects weren’t literally built for each other; they somehow found each other like Adélie penguins–it’s as though that Legend of Zelda cartridge for Nintendo 64 was destined to be with that Sephora box forever and ever.

Have a look at more objects that found their purpose in the slides above.
