I was inspired by the philosophy of this project
I planned for it to be quick and simple but I kept making a mess of the angled lap joint until I finally found the patience to make a jig for it. Lucky I used cheap pine!
I used a program called DeltaCAD to draw the project first. The shelves taper in a geometric progression; the ratio of the biggest to smallest shelf is 1:1.618. The tapering of the shelf depth follows the same relationship.
For me this was a really profound project because it’s the first time I’ve emphasised design over execution.
The idea behind the colouring was to accentuate the shelves and make the supports less visible.
