A bookshelf designed to be assembled very easily, with no screw or aditional parts, like a wooden game. With the assembly directions engraved on the wood the instructions never get lost and it makes it intuitive to understand, plus they function as a reminder of the whole process, so this one event keeps present for the rest of the objects life.

The pallets shelves were rough and dirty. I picked 4 pallets up off a nearby street, made the shelves, and screwed them directly into my drywall with drywall anchors. Each pallet had about 10 screws across the pallet to distribute the weight; each anchor had a 40 lb hanging capacity. The shelves were made by prying off the slats with handy tools, and then sawing out slots so that they they sit snuggly into the three main pallet supports. After that, you can gently screw the "shelves" into the vertical slats that remain! No varnishing; just raw wood and rusty nails. Functions moderately well to showcase your books but not great for daily access to your library!

Smith is a multi purpose storage unit designed for the overlapping interests of the home and office. Its storage area holds folders, books and other useful items. Attaching itself to tables, Smith helps convert a dining room into a temporary workspace. The design can also be used as a stool or side table, and its tapered proportion allows it to be stacked and placed out of the way. Smith is a flexible hybrid that allows its user to define its end purpose.

The rack comes with a set of 10 pins/bookmarks. The pins are detached and can be moved around the back piece to meet your needs at each time. The books rest on a small wooden plate so the pages stay intact. The plates can be moved back and forth on the bottom of the book to control the height of which the book hangs, making it possible to line different sized books up in a straight line. We are book lovers and would never want anything to harm the pages of our books. We've had our book racks hanging for a while now and our books are happy, showing no signs of wear from this storage method.

I am looking in every nook and cranny of the room to find hidden spaces. Under the table, beneath the bed, above the wardrobe ... All the space in the room is completely full of odds and ends. There's no other choice. And I start building my objet like the city's tallest building seen from the window in the room.

Kulma, corner in Finnish, is a shelf to be hanged either in a positive or a negative corner of a room. The idea is to utilize and highlight both the space within the shelf and the corner surrounding the shelf.

The shelves are held in place with only spring tension, so they can be slid up or down when empty and brace more firmly against the sides when loaded. Welded from parts of a fun-park carousel, restaurant sinks and a roll-down gate, this post-industrial, post-consumer furniture is easy to lift, even fully loaded, and as such is perfect for itinerant students or that literary bedouin in your life.

My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. The title of one of my pieces is “ All Ideas Look Alike”. Contemporary art seems to have forgotten that there is an exterior to the intellect. I want to examine thinking, not only “What” we think, but “That” we think.
So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
