Arthur Analts : Wow shelf

Wow est une étagère conçue par le jeune designer letton Arthur Analts. À l’instar d’un vide-poche, on y dépose des pièces de monnaie, des clés et des objets de petite taille. Inspirée de la forme du symbole payen letton Māra (déesse de la fertilité et de la protection), Wow a été conçue à partir d’une feuille d’aluminium perforée et pliée. Comme un ruban torsadé, le support forme des petites niches rappelant la forme d’un berceau.

About : Wow is a shelf designed for coins, keys, cards and other pocket sized things. Its form is inspired by an ancien Latvian pagan symbol – Māra, which reflects mother love and safety. This is reflected in the cradling shelf cups which can be seen in the wow cups.

The shelf is bent from a single, specially cut aluminium sheet, fixed together and powder coated in different colours for different interiors. Wow can be easily attached to wall by special fleece tape and holds up to 42kg (93lbs).
