The Storyline Shelf

I've included a couple of images from the Dutch By Design collection called Storyline. It's a bookshelf that has taken the form of an abstracted sound wave. The designer created the piece in the exploration of the forms words make when they are spoken from a book. The form of this book shelf shown above is for the word “Bliss”. Due to the nature of the designer's language, I'm speculating that the designer would probably not be able to create book shelves in his native Dutch unless he wanted a shelf that was twelve feet long. Anyway! Once the aluminum shape is created the piece is anodized and there you are.
