HELIX: Modular Shelving System – HELIX is an interesting shelving system which was presented this year at the Design Week in Milan. It is not only a piece of furniture, but also works well as the architectural part of interior. Helix shelving system on the walls and ceiling creates an impressive atmosphere.
HELIX is designed by Bureau OSW (Open Source Workshop) as a modular piece of furniture that can be sustainable for private houses, as well as public spaces. Modules come in various sizes, colors and orientations, so that can be fitted in different ways following the architecture of the building.
The modules are made by 5-axis robot out of a solid material that is made out of corn and it is fully recyclable. The producing process is very sustain able because it has low carbon dioxide emission. The material is also extremely lightweight as well as durable.
