The Quake Shelves are inspired by the experience of moving to the Bay Area as an adult, and finding the idea of bolting one's bookshelves to the wall to be a novel concept. Metal brackets affix to the wall and paduk shelves move freely back and forth inside them. The fronts are patterned with a series of holes comprising a map of earthquakes in California for the previous week. Thus each successive shelf will vary slightly in its patterning. A patina finish furthers the feeling of landscape.
Prototype, sold. If you are a manufacturer interested in producing these shelves, please contact me.
