“A plain hanged, static but dynamic, still and tensed.”
A square glass plain supported by 4 metallic trestles; 2 steel cables at the opposite corners (on diagonal) step all the way up to the ceiling while the other 2 cables of the remaining corners will be directed towards the bottom until it locks to a base, which functions as a counter-weight and stabilizes the shelf keeping the cables tensed. The electric system, which provides low tension power to the cables is located within the cavity at the bottom; just by attaching a spotlight it is possible to illuminate the shelf in a graphically pleasing way. The junction between glass and steel cable occurs thanks to a small aluminium buckle while the cable junction at the bottom can be regulated through an especially designed stretcher.
The idea originally was conceived as a bonsai shelf due to the fact that every object placed on it projects its shadow on the wall, shadow which is bigger in size in comparison to the actual size of the bonsai, giving the illusion of a big a tree.
