dancing squares

We assembled square planes to create a sense of motion in this series of objects. One part of the bookshelf is frozen in a tumbling cascade, creating variety in the way books can be stacked. The stool’s twist endows it with rich visual play. Lamps roll about but are stable, thanks to their planes, and cast light in many directions. The table leans as though falling away, but maintains its function as a table, and makes objects placed on it seem to sink into its folds and sways. The different movements, make balance and unbalance overlap, as though we are watching the planes themselves dance.
