Block Shelf by Amy Hunting

Block Shelf by Amy Hunting

Norwegian furniture designer Amy Hunting (currently living in London) has come up with this fantastic bookshelf! To create this innovative and exciting design, Amy has used blocks of over 20 types of wood, found in a London timber importers waste bin and cotton rope. Using off-cuts of wood, Amy makes the most of what others might ignore or throw out, demonstrating an eco-conscience without losing her savvy. Because Amy won the the 2nd award at Green Furniture Award 2010, her prototype has been taken on by Green Furniture Sweden and has been put into production using wood leftovers from a wood flooring factory in Sweden.

According to Amy, “The dogma behind this product is probably quite obvious: what can you do with blocks of wood and cotton rope? Using a knot traditionally used for sailing and fishing you can pull the strings and the shelf will disassemble. It can easily be put together again.

    I think the bookshelf pretty interesting because it may just take advantage of these extra pieces of wood^^

    This is great design, and so simple in making. I figure that I would make one such for floor, means bigger and putted on floor.

    As a decoration item, it is interesting, but I’m just afraid it might not be strong enough to hold too many books.

    I am interested in the Spell Shelf design by Da-Eun Song, its dimensions and price quote, of what material it is made of, where made, S&H info & agreements, if in stock at any store you are aware of. As you say you are not a store, please advice me on where to purchase this product, in what store, and if a website is available for the designer. Thank you.

    Typo/spelling Corrections:
    NAME J. C. Badillo S, ( earlier entered with a comma after C. )
    Word “advice” should be spelled “advise” in its verb mode.
