Jumping In: Initial Shelf Concepts
David and Alysia, the Harlem House homeowners, sent us images containing about 200 books they own. We jumped right into brainstorming about how we could make a shelving unit that spoke to David's organizational needs while incorporating Alysia's whimsical needs.
Both David and Alysia gravitated towards the concept of slotted rectilinear shapes that lock together, creating a system of organized chaos within the office space. They would pack down into a few sets of concentric shapes, specifically designed for easy moving and storage. Multiple configurations allowed for Alysia's need for variation.
