Opus

The inspiration for Opus Shelving (2000) came to designer Sean Yoo during a trip to Pompeii. While walking through the streets of the archaeological site, the designer was struck by a Roman wall-building technique known as “opus incertum,” which is characterized by a distinctively erratic combination of blocks. Yoo went on to observe this layout of elements elsewhere, from dried-up lake beds in the deserts of Las Vegas to the sidewalks of Los Angeles. He took this familiar pattern and adapted it into shelving that’s made from 100% recyclable expanded polypropylene – the same material chosen for motorcycle helmets due to its light weight and durability.
