Please note, each Shelve is made to order and requires a 4 – 6 week lead time.
Behind the art
“Shelve” derives from Snarkitecture’s previous work like their Slab Table, for which they cast a functional object from a hole in the earth. “Shelve” has a seamless relationship to the wall’s mass, as if it were extruded or pulled from the wall.
Snarkitecture is a collaborative practice operating in territories between the disciplines of art and architecture. Working within existing spaces or in collaboration with other artists and designers, the practice focuses on the investigation of structure, material and program and how these elements can be manipulated to serve new and imaginative purposes. Searching for sites within architecture with the possibility for confusion or misuse, Snarkitecture aims to make architecture perform the unexpected. Snarkitecture was established by Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonen.
