“Level” Shelving Unit Inspired by The Principle of Communicating Vessels
We love the concept behind this minimalist shelving unit envisioned by Barcelona based designer Roger Moliné. Discovered on Likecool, Level was born from “a clear reference in the world of hydraulic engineering; communicating vessels. These are a series of vessels containing a homogeneous liquid. Thanks to the communication between vessels, the fluid moves until reaching an equilibrium level, irrespective of the inclination or orientation of the glasses”. The project is divided in two parts which communicate with each other.
Despite its elegant and seamless fragile look, the shelving unit is sturdy and as a consequence, very practical. Level consists of two major elements: “The first are the pivots, they allow a proper grip on any kind of wall and also articulate the movement of the fabric. These parts are composed of a shaft with bearings which allow rotation of the cylinder which supports the fabric. And second, canvas acrylic, which thanks to its stiffness can hold any kind of books”. We salute this innovative shelving idea and would definitely enjoy seeing it embedded in various interior design projects!
