The Boleanos by Joel Escalona, a designer hailing from Mexico, is a shelving unit that can double as a low side table. A stunning piece of work that deals in the abstract, it is made up of a pile wood blocks that look as though they are going to topple over at any moment. Overlapping in a seemingly impossible way, the furniture piece defies logic in more than a few ways.
Comissioned by Glocal Design Magazine and Masisa brand for the opening of the Design Week Mexico 2012, specifically the exhibition 'Hecho en México,' Boleanos by Joel Escalona is a stunning design. The designer explored the concepts of construction and de-construction through the use of materials finishes. It is made out of Masisa boards.
