Kaze Shelving by Toyo Ito
The Kaze Shelving by star Japanese architect Toyo Ito is, how do I say, very architectural. Kaze, the Japanese word for wind is the name of the system, I’m assuming, because each shelf in the system resembles a plane wing. Or, maybe it’s because the system, although extremely strong, is as light as the wind. The legs and the underside of Kaze also have a mirror finish which visually dissolve the shelving into leaves floating on the wind…or Kaze might have some completely different meaning for Toyo Ito, and I am wrong as usual.
