Scripted Shelves

Engramer gave a completely different function to these Kanji characters, Chinese characters that are also used in the Japanese language. The structures beautifully represent the characters in their purest forms, leading users to consider the importance of typography, script, and the written language in general.

These specific designs of his remind me of Pieter de Leeuw’s letters bookshelves. In de Leeuw’s work, users are able to arrange the letters in any which way they desire in order to create a space for displaying and storing their books. Individual letters can also be used for seating.
