Lines Shelving System by Alexander Zhukovsky

Home > Winners > #71717


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lines

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Shelving System

INSPIRATION:
When I drew sketches of "Lines", I did not think that in the end, we would build a shelving system. I did not think of either the title or the subject of this design. I studied the art of Mondrian, Kandinsky, Bauhaus, etc. and just experimented with lines, dots, and simplest geometric figures. Actually, to be honest, I was working on creating interior prints. And only then I got the idea to turn the lines into the physical entity.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The "Lines" shelving system is easily assembled and disassembled. Rigidity, durability, and stability of this shelving are provided solely by its architecture, which is based on the intersection of vertical, horizontal and diagonal lines, as well as the physical properties of the material which it is made from. No fasteners, no bolts or screws are used to fix the parts. It has no front and back sides. All of the sides are facades and look the same. That is why it can be used as a room divider.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Several flat elements and connections were developed during its creation, using which countless variations of design can be created. This shelving system is delivered in a flat package. It is easily assembled and disassembled. There’s no need to use any fasteners or bolts to join the parts. Similar to a Lego set, every flat element has several notches which are used as joints for assembly. Some of the elements fasten the whole construction. You just need to know the unique sequence of assembly.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2018 in San Diego, CA, USA and finished in June 2018.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The "Lines" shelving system is made of CNC milled plywood. Finished with a walnut veneer and matte polyurethane coating.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 2286 mm x Depth 330 mm x Height 2267 mm

TAGS:
shelving, storage, shelf, room divider, bookcase, plywood furniture, interior zoning, rack

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The "Lines" shelving is a concept in which the movement of a point creates the geometric beauty of a line, and then the line creates the functionality of space. That is the case when the functional design is a result of solely the creative process of playing with lines and searching for an interesting composition without reference to the material, technology, shape or color. Just graphics, just drawing. Therefore, the result of this creativity – the "Lines" shelving system – is a kind of art object.

CHALLENGE:
When I started this project, I did not have anything particular in mind. For the most part, this was a purely artistic work. I am fascinated by simple shapes and minimalist forms of expression. In this piece, I searched for a way to convert my conceptual sketches into a functional item.
