Icelandic industrial designer Olafur Eliasson has created a new set of shelving as part of his Green Light series. The shelving, which joins a table in the Green Light series, features a similar geometrical pattern to that table, but this pattern is reimagined in three dimensions to impressive effect.
Eliasson's shelving surfaces alternate between rectangular and trapezoidal shapes in order to conform to the angular construction of the frames. These frames consist of a series of triangles, but the triangles are all placed at slightly different canted angles. As one walks around the shelving, the frames thus seem to transform and shift their patterns — an illusion caused by the eye's inability to process the subtle changes in depth.
The Green Light series was unveiled at Milan design week.
