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). I also really love the way it provides a number of different modes to display books and objects within, or nothing at all as it looks perfectly beautiful to enjoy as a sculptural object alone.
