Stack is a modular shelving system designed not only to give flexibility in their arrangement, but to provide a graphic element within the shelves themselves.
A pattern of polygons within each hexagonal compartment visually divide the spaces and produce a cubic guise. The illusion of a familiar three-dimensional form found within Stack creates interest in a space often overlooked, that within a shelf. In addition, the use of a different bright color featured in each unit along with the modular nature of the system allow for a variety of combinations and configurations.
Several steps were taken in the development of this modular shelf design beginning with the inspiration to incorporate color and pattern into a functional storage system. Ideation led to a design which was tested as two, full-scale models before construction of the final pieces.
