Details

Shelve Your Things utilises the possessions we already own as inputs for new products of mass customisation. It works like this - you input the dimensions of your possessions online before arranging them on the screen. This is an algorithm I designed that adds sufficient padding around each object and attempts to fill in empty space in accordance to the golden ratio. The design is explored and CNC manufactured at an IKEA 2.0 and assembled at home. This is my shelf, I built it around my possessions. This product is an experience that engages us in the design process, forcing us to consider what objects are important to us before we silhouette them into the furniture of our home. Developing a relationship with both the shelf and our possessions.
