Imeuble: 3-Dimensionally Abstract Shelves


Mon, Jun 3rd, 2013 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Looking like pieces that would've been designed by M.C. Escher, this abstract shelving unit called Imeüble by designer Bjørn Jørund Blikstad, takes the ordinary shelf and gives it a beautifully twisted look that will confuse your perspective.

With Imeuble, Blikstad has achieved an incredible and engaging representation of that transition of memory from 2D to 3D that not only looks beautiful but also functionable. The modular shelving unit made of axiometric cubes that appear flat in photographs and from a distance, but reveal their depth as you approach. 'Almost no one gets it until they physically see it,’ says Blikstad. 'I’m interested in storage. Everyone wants to make beautiful chairs, but there hasn’t been that much innovation in ways of storing things.’
