The Frames Wall Plays on the Mainstream Picture-Mounting Practice

A mosaic of photos mounted into a dynamic decorative mural is a popular means to display pictures in the contemporary home. Along those lines, the Frames Wall mimics the motif of clustered rectangles, this time for the purpose of arranging very different objects.

Gerard de Hoop's chic lacquered black MDF shadow boxes reference the bold borders installed to protect and present photographs. Here, however, the sides of the shapes merge into an amalgamated bunch leaving no gaps between them and only openings within.

Three layers of the framework are stacked, spaced and joined, appearing flat but removed from the wall on which it's hung. This depth provides intriguing and changing views from every perspective of the storage system, and broad enough ledges to support books of varying sizes as well as other possessions.
