Secret Cubic Shelves
Secret Cubic is a set of highly distinctive shelves designed by Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson for Moroso. A result of the artist’s intensive, decades-long engagement with geometry, the shelves are derived from a stackable rhomboid module that has featured in his oeuvre since 2015 (itself inspired by works of Einar Thorsteinn and R. Buckminster Fuller). To arrive at the geometry, two identical cubes are rotated along a common diagonal axis until the edges of both cubes are divided according to the golden ratio. Drawing lines where the faces intersect (and cutting away the rest) leaves you with a polyhedron composed of twelve triangular faces. The resulting shelves are shaped as much by the absence of form as by its presence, an intriguing construction which is as sculptural as it is practical. The Secrete Cubic shelves work well in both residential and commercial spaces, an artistic piece guaranteed to be a conversation starter wherever it is placed.
The Secret Cubic Shelves are available in two sizes and three colours. Please contact us for more information on these options.
Olafur Eliasson is an award-winning Icelandic–Danish artist renowned for large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water, and air temperature to enhance the viewer's experience. Olafur represented Denmark at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003 and later that year installed The Weather Project, which has been described as "a milestone in contemporary art", in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern museum in London. Other well known installations by Eliasson include the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in London in 2007 and The New York City Waterfalls in 2008.
