Belgium-based designer Damien Gernay has displayed the Bloated Shelf at London’s Mint Shop as a part of the London Design Festival 2013. The storage shelf comprises an ash wood frame and four bloated leather shelves. From the designer, “The idea originates from the image of a proeminent belly, constrained by the belt, but still comfortable at it fills a round shape around it. This shelf is a dialogue between a rigid structure and a flexible skin.The bloated collection is made out of sheets of leather, filled with expanded foam No complicated moulds, and no seams are used in the production, the leather inflate in a natural way, making each piece unique. Limited edition of 12 for Galerie Gosserez”
