Description: The inspiration for Opus Shelving (2000) came to designer Sean Yoo during a trip to Pompeii. While walking through the streets of the archaeological site, the designer was struck by a Roman wall-building technique known as “opus incertum,” which is characterized by a distinctively erratic combination of blocks. Yoo went on to observe this layout of elements elsewhere, from dried-up lake beds in the deserts of Las Vegas to the sidewalks of Los Angeles. He took this familiar pattern and adapted it into shelving that’s made from 100 recyclable expanded polypropylene – the same material chosen for motorcycle helmets due to its light weight and durability. Opus units can be stacked (strong double-sided tape is included) or set side by side, used against a wall or as a room divider. Opus was chosen by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs and the Design Museum of Milan to be included in the I.DoT 2006–2007, a juried exhibition that selects, certifies and promotes the best of contemporary Italian design for a traveling exhibition.
