The designer Amy Hunting describes her ‘BlockShelf’ shelf as followed:

‘The dogma behind this product is probably quite obvious: what can you do with blocks of wood and cotton rope? Using a knot traditionally used for sailing and fishing ,you can pull the strings and the shelf will disassemble. It can easily be put together again. The wood is collected from a local timber importers waste bin in London and consists of over 20 sorts of untreated wood. This is the first result of the rope and wood experiments.’

‘BlockShelf’ will be put in production during Spring 2010 but can be ordered for €500 (incl. shipping) already via www.greenfurniture.se.

‘BlockShelf’ was awarded with the 2nd prize from Green Furniture Award 2010.

    This is original and very simple and easy to the eyes. It shows again that beautiful things do not have to be complicated. There is a clean simple look to it yet it’s interesting to look at.
