Mushroom Shelf by Shota Urasaki

Home > Winners > #140071


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Mushroom

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Shelf

INSPIRATION:
I usually create ideas from the nature around me. This was inspired by the sight of mushrooms growing out of a wooden sign in my neighborhood. I felt the vitality and freedom of the mushrooms that grow from artifacts. It was very interesting. Currently, there are various ways of life and values. This shelf changes its appearance depending on the user.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The shelf of camphor tree, sculpted to look like a mushroom, is embedded with magnets. Therefore, they can be placed freely. The mushrooms are attached to a thin steel plate that rises up from the floor. The large mushrooms can be used to place various items, while the small mushrooms can be used to hold postcards or memos.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
-

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2020 in Okinawa and finished in January 2021 in Okinawa.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The mushrooms are carefully hand-carved one by one from Okinawan camphorwood. Thin steel plates were then bent and combined with plywood to create the base to which the mushrooms are attached.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 910mm x Depth 450mm x Height 1500mm

TAGS:
Okinawa, Japan, Nature, Shelf, Furniture

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I visited several islands in Okinawa for this project. I observed and repeatedly sketched the nature there. Then, while modeling in 3D, I made a number of mock-ups and examined them. At the same time, I also considered what materials would be appropriate.

CHALLENGE:
I had a hard time conveying the wonder of nature in a sensory way. Structure and details were important, but I had to make sure that what I felt was expressed properly as I worked toward completion.
