The ‘Pila’ series, meaning ‘pile’ in italian is a unique and unconventional assemblage of different plates by German designer Hanna Krüger from the Rosenthal Studio Line. The design ‘Pila’ stacks china plates and transforms them into vases and lamps with reference from everyday life – where plate piles are created for pragmatic reasons, for washing up in the sink or stashed in the cupboard. The design also demonstrates that the clash of forms, stories and time can develop a completely new aesthetic dimension.

I stumbled upon this glorious shelf while looking for something completely unrelated. I love it when that happens. My “click fest” lead me to the website of Takuya Hamajima, Japanese maker and artist based in Tokyo. I love this shelf. A lot. It redefines what a shelf should look like in the first place. It’s intersecting lines, interlocking objects and geometries are reminiscent of an architectural drawing – a floor-plan of a circular building (drawn on Yellowtrace of course).
