The Voronoi Shelf by Mark Newson is more than a furniture, rather an impressive piece of modern art made from white Carrara marble. This impressive bookcase reminds us monumental marble sculptures.
Each Voronoi Shelf was made from a solid five metric-ton block of marble, which was cut based in the shape of a computer-generated “Voronoi Diagram” pattern. The organic design is a computational geometry concept crystallized in marble. The degree of complexity, the proportions and delicacy of the piece all serve to showcase Newson’s unique design aesthetics.
“Sometimes I start with the material, sometimes the idea. In this case the materials were the inspiration. Often the context of materials strikes me more than the materials themselves. Context is new, not materials.” – Marc Newson.
