This piece reminds me of the folded ribbon game, I played as a child. The Wow shelf by Latvian design student Arthur Analts was created to enhance your entryway and provide a convenient place for your keys, loose change and other small items. Made from a single aluminum sheet, folded in a crisscrossed pattern, the shelf is light and sturdy (it can hold up to 93lb). It is attached to walls by a special fleece tape. ‘The inspiration came from the unique metal’s bending possibility, creating the form from one piece of aluminium with almost no material loss,’ – explains the designer. ‘My goal was to be sure the whole object will look aesthetically pleasing and be lightweight, even without accessories in it.’ The Wow shelf can be powdercoated in various colors.
