Peng Wang’s Fibonacci Shelf
Mathematics meets design in this cool and calculated shelving system designed by Peng Wang of Utopia Architecture & Design.
The striking modular shelf applies principles of the Fibonacci sequence, a pattern of numbers in which each number equals the sum of the two numbers before it. As the sequence progresses, the ratio draws ever closer to the magic number 1.618 – otherwise known as the Golden Ratio.
This fascinating pattern has become the basis of the Fibonacci Shelf. The design, comprising of six metal frames open on both ends and a side table for support, not only provides versatility to be used in multiple spaces, but is a stunning piece of furniture that draws mathematics, nature and design together.
