Leaning Shelf

Where exactly is the divide between an object and its surroundings? Marija Dondovic explores this idea with her ‘Leaning Shelf’. This shelf is entirely reliant on the immediate architecture: it can only stand when leaning in a corner. The furniture is in symbiosis with the interior. For the onlooker, the shelf seems to disappear partially into the wall itself; a visual illusion challenging the actual reality. Yet the piece remains functional. The user can display a favourite collection or treasured possessions for all to admire.
