like an iceberg.

i just think that these are fun...
contemporist featured these recently, these crisp, white, very geometric shelves designed by lucas stoppele and jean-charles kien (who each by the way, have very cool websites).

and what lucas and jean-charles have done so well here is convey the sensation of the architecture, the rigid perhaps frame of an iceberg, the part that you can't see in reality as it sits, or almost appears to float atop the water. and the use of the smooth, cool, marble top represents the rather perfect face or finish of an iceberg. i know it's just a shelf, in reality, but it's super fun when just a shelf sends your imagination flying like these do. enjoy!
