Snarkitecture : Shelve

Shelve by Brooklyn-based art & architecture practice Snarkitecture.

Shelve is an excavated slab cantilevered from a wall. The smooth top surface of the rectilinear volume extends outward before its sides dissolve into the textured form of the underside. Sloping down to the wall in ruin, this cragged landscape appears to merge into the wall’s surface, as though pulled from the earth below it. Shelve can be installed individually or in multiple to create a larger architectural installation.

Shelve 2012 – Lacquered wood, fiberglass
Available in lengths of 24″, 36″, 48″ and depths of 6″, 9″, 12″ and 15″

Snarkitecture is a collaborative practice operating in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture. Working within existing spaces or in collaboration with other artists and designers, the practice focuses on the investigation of structure, material and program and how these elements can be manipulated to serve new and imaginative purposes. Searching for sites within architecture with the possibility for confusion or misuse, Snarkitecture aims to make architecture perform the unexpected.

Snarkitecture was established by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham and is represented by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris.
