pearl / shelf


"pearl" is a set of shelves made of solid wood boxes. They are thread on a chord like pearls on a necklace. Hanging on the wall "pearl" changes its shape by shifting the weight of the boxes.
By piling the boxes into one another "pearl" transforms into the handy size of 380x380x280 mm.
