WARP shelves

Steel rod Ø10mm, steel rod Ø5mm

“A vague disquiet moves us to give something a closer look. We then see that what is before us is very different from what it first appeared to be. The world that we have relied on for solidity and stability shudders and shifts unpredictably, as if in a dream. Continuing our scrutiny, we finally satisfy ourselves that the aberration was only in the eye of the beholder and not, after all, in the world beheld. Reality regains its former stability and composure – and we laugh. It is the laugh that follows a narrowly averted accident.”
-Roger Shepard

WARP is the outcome of my research of how to implement optical illusion in a structure of a piece of furniture. WARP is a two-level wall mounted shelf that is mounted on the wall with four screws. The source of inspiration rises from OP art and artists such as Victor Vasarely and Bridget Riley. The way the steel structure is bent creates an art-like piece against the wall and borders the products on the shelf. The structure isn’t only a visual effect, but it also makes the structure stronger.
