Multi-Tier Shelf System
2016 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition
United Arab Emirates
The Multi-Tier Shelf System has Maple shelves that rest on vertical slanting legs without any hardware connections. They’re pinned to the topmost shelve with a custom-made solid brass pins, which allows the legs to fold down for flat pack shipping. These Maple legs organically grow from the horizontal top surface, and drop down to the ground. The connection points where more than two pieces come together are either highlighted with the manipulation of it’s surrounding to create a ‘soft’ formal response, or a tectonic expression that elegantly that fuses members together. Also, the shelves have inset camel leather collars that snugly hug the legs to prevent them from sliding down. Additional shelves could be installed at different heights with exact hole patterns that match the leg slant angles.
