Design of a shelf-desk-closet system for personal use.
This furniture, made entirely out of wood, is based on Hrant's vision on design in general and it can be described by one Dutch word: "ongedwongen". Which can be translated as unstrained, unforced, naive, casual and free. This concerns the design process as well as the final product. Trying to work in harmony with the natural and man made world. With this vision the desk-shelf and closet are created. All different parts are free yet connected and nothing is fixed permanently, there are no screws/nails/glue and even the columns of the shelf desk rotate. The important factor here is accuracy, all holes must have the exact size and alignment. The centre of gravity is calculated so that the furniture wont flip over even if you lean heavily on the desk. The construction stays stable thanks to the weight of the shelves and the stuff it carries (books, boxes, computer etc.). The closet is an open type, you can see all your clothes hanging like in a shop, you can store socks and underwear in boxes if you want to, but the challenge is to keep your clothes nicely folded and sorted so it wont look messy.
You may have noticed that none of the shelves have the same height but are scaled proportionally, this gives a more natural "ongedwongen" look. The desk and the shelves are not separate but one. The further away you get the smaller the space becomes - just like - the thinner the air high in the sky or smaller the branches on treetops.
When placing the furniture on an uneven or soft floor, loosely fixing two back columns on both sides to the wall will solve any safety issues.
