One part of the bookshelf is frozen in its cascade of tumbling planes, creating variety in the way books can be stacked.

The stool’s twist endows it with visual play.

Lamps roll about but are stable, thank to their planes, and cast light in different directions.

The table leans as though falling away, but maintains its function as a table, and makes objects placed on it seem to sink into its folds and sways.

The different ‘movements’make balance and unbalance overlap, as though we are watching the planes themselves dance.
