If there is a line between art and design, this project certainly leans toward creativity over function. Whether you want to put one in your own living room is a subjective question.

Ulterior Projects in Vancouver, BC, focuses on the abstract and semi-chaotic patterns of nature and computer-generated code, then takes and applies them to real forms with fascinatingly mixed results.

The nooks and crannies are extreme in this case, but not without function – in some ways, one could argue these shapes to be more usefully varied than those of a typical standard-shelf-height bookcase design.
