Materials: solid walnut, LED strip light, batteries, and wineglasses (provided by owner)
Designer: Julian King, Architect
"The Design was in answer to the specific needs of apartment living in New York City, with a wineglass rack that employs the sparkling crystal of the glasses as lenses to diffuse and refract light from a battery powered LED light strip."
"It is at once a shelf, a light fixture, and a wineglass rack. Its form is generated by the wineglasses; their profile creating a slot in the end of the solid Walnut shelf giving away its function, in a subtle marriage of form and function."
