Check & Oblique Shelf By BUILT IN Studio
Brooklyn based design firm BUILT IN Studio have managed to resurrect the hackneyed shelf by showing a penchant towards unique geometrical shapes. Both their Check Shelf and Oblique Shelf don’t adhere to the traditional linear shapes one usually associates with wall shelves and hence here lies it strength. Each shelf is nothing short of a sculptural archetype in furniture but still hasn’t managed to alienate its primordial properties. Both shelves have are hand-made of solid American hardwoods and are finished with a low VOC polyurethane that seem to further highlight the exaggerated shape of the shelves.
