This forthcoming series seeks to redefine function and typology of furniture, obscuring the clarity of the object and relationship it has with a person and a space of a room.

This display shelf is an independently standing object offering a dual function - shelf/room divider. This piece i attractive on all sides allowing for a less common use and placement within the room. When placed against the wall it assures its independence and activates the wall space.

Freestanding Shelf

“The elements in her several-piece installation, spread around a traditionally designed room with old-timey sconces, are painted a day-glo chartreuse. You sure couldn’t miss them, but they purposely create puzzlement, too. Two columns that don’t hold anything up stand sentry on a plinth.” - Ted Loos, Cultured
