fibonacci shelf

fibonacci shelf by PENG WANG/ Utopia Architecture & Design from uk

designer's own words:

The metal shelf applies the principles of the Fibonacci sequence, which is also called Golden Section for the intimately connection with the golden ratio, to arrange every size of its units in series. The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers: {0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ... } , in which the next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it.

This design is composed of seven units, six metal frames opened on both sides (55cm, 34cm, 21cm,13cm, 8cm, 5cm in length and width respectively) and a side table base on the bottom, which could be used separately, combines the freedom to incorporate the modular series into different interior spaces or scenarios.

Size: 55cm(L) × 55cm(W) × 145cm(H)
Materials : Metal
