Spherical Shelves and More Futuristic Estonian Design
Spherical shelves, spinning chairs and moleskin doors… Estonia is up to something very cool. More precisely, designer Jaanus Orgusaar is. We first fell in love with his unusual, spherical shelves. The Mini, Small, Medium and Big Comb are made of plywood and come in four sizes – large, medium, small and mini.
We haven’t had a chance to ask the award-winning artist if his Dune shelf was inspired by the classic Sci-Fi book aka David Lynch movie, but we cannot resist the name – or the design. What’s evident is that Orgusaar is very much into exploring geometry. He’s built a much written-about, six-sided wood cabin.
Back to his shop though. Besides the book shelves, which work beautifully in small spaces (get the Mini), there are other futuristic pieces such as the Eight Cells Lamp and spinning Accelerator chair. Equally fascinating as this head-spinning seat is the Odyssey upholstered moleskin door, which looks like an oddly angelic portal into the future.
