Power by numbers
The Fibonacci Shelf by Peng Wang of Utopia Architecture & Design is based on one of the most intruiging things in mathematics: the Fibonacci sequence or the Golden Ratio. The Fibonacci Sequence is a series of numbers in which the next number is obtained by adding up the two numbers before: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ….
The shelf is versatile piece of furniture made from a variety of six metal squares, combined with a metal table base that can also be used as a side table.
The pleasing proportions of the Golden Ratio – although its fame is recently questioned too – make this piece a pleasure to look at and to re- and deconstruct, putting all pieces together to create your own mathematical puzzle.
