Costae derived its name from the Latin word costa (pl. costae) meaning “rib”. In vertebrates, ribs play an essential role in protecting internal organs and supporting the spine. The structure of the Costae, like its biological counterpart, also functions as support and protection. Its horizontal frameworks (ribs) support the vertical frameworks (backbones) that extend from base to top, adding stability to the furniture. Its enclosing feature allows for storage and protection, while its top surface allows for placement of things.
