Secret Cubic Shelves

Supersalone 2021

September 2021
At the “supersalone” Moroso presents “Secret Cubic Shelves”, designed by Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson. Born from the project “Green light – An artistic workshop”, the shelves reflect the artist’s intensive, decades-long engagement with geometry. The Green light lamp is a stackable module originally developed byEliasson’s long-time collaborator, the mathematician Einar Thorsteinn (1942–2015), as part of his long-standing research into five fold symmetry. The form, based on the golden triangle, can be combined to form luminous sculptures or sprawling modular  environments. “Secret Cubic Shelves” is built around a rhomboid negative space delineated by the modules.
Originally produced as a prototype in multiplex and steel in 2017, this new edition is made entirely of iron (recycled and recyclable), with non-toxic powder coating. The solid and durable construction and short supply chain guarantee reduced waste of resources, raw materials and energy and, consequently, a lower environmental impact. The shelving system was created in collaboration with technical partner Fantin.
