DESIGNER: DAMIEN GERNAY
With this project «Bloated Shelf», Damien Gernay explores further his research into organic anarchy or how the matter creates its own shape when forced into a predefined structure.
Bloated Shelf is a particular illustration of that research, using leather. The idea originates from the image of a proeminent belly, constrained by the belt, but still comfortable at it fills a round shape around it.
The shelf is a dialogue between a rigid structure and a flexible skin. When expanded, by foam, the leather takes its own shape and curls around the plank, making each piece an unique piece.
