Using 3D printing technology, designer Ed Rawle created the Helical Shelf System with two platforms that scale up and down the helix-shaped stands in opposite directions.

Each of the spirals is going in a different direction, so as they turn, the upper shelf moves up as the lower one goes down and vice-versa. This dynamic piece of furniture is excellent for those who require their home decor to be flexible and adaptable, especially if they like to change the way things look from time to time. One day this piece can be a bookshelf; the next it can be a display case.

The Helical Shelf System operates with a simple cog and belt design.
