Shelving is pretty boring, they all pretty much look the same, but designer Bjørn Jørund Blikstad has come up with these fun optical illusion shelves called ‘Imeüble’, which are designed to make you look at things differently.
Take a look at the pictures below and you will see what we mean, although I wouldn’t spend to long looking at them as you may end up with a headache like me.
This project goes by the name “Imeüble” and it’s a shelving system that accesses not just your eyeballs and book-storing hands, it works with your mind to help you store information the same way you learn to associate words to their meanings! The easiest comparison is one the designer uses: when you read the word “cornfield,” you imagine a field full of corn, not the word “cornfield.” In that the shelf appears to be 2D but is actually 3D, this whole system works in the same environment of learning.
They certainly look fun, although I am not sure if I would like these in my house.
