Shelf for Your Things
Shelf for Your Things is a custom shelving designer that is built specifically around the possessions of the user. Through online software the user inputs the dimensions of their possessions and arranges them on the screen as the software visualises a shelving design around them.
The software enables individuals to essentially ‘feel like a designer’. While they are not given full control over the design of the shelf, they are given control over specific aspects of the design that matter most, through the lens of their possessions.
As each shelf is unique, each shelf must be manufactured on demand. To achieve this the shelves would be through CNC processes. This enables the shelves to be manufactured and assembled locally by any CNC bureau or manufacture contractor. Inspired by cement trucks, that mix cement and essentially manufacture their product on route, I envisioned a CNC truck that manufactures customers shelves on route to assembling them in their house.
