The shelf is made of a single bent sheet of aluminium, fixed together and powder-coated in various colours. ‘The inspiration came from the unique metal’s bending possibility, creating the form from one piece of aluminium with almost no material loss,’ explains Analts. ‘My goal was to be sure the whole object will look aesthetically pleasing and be lightweight, even without accessories in it.’ The shape of the shelf was inspired by the Latvian ethnographic symbol ‘mara,’ which reflects a mothers’ love and comfort; this is reflected in the cradling shelf cups. ‘The toughest challenge was to be sure the cup form and angle would be practical, so objects placed in them wouldn’t fall to the ground,’ Analts explains. ‘I tried to make cup a form that can hold a wide range of items for practicality.’ The shelf can hold up to 42 kg (93 lbs) and is fixed to walls by a special fleece tape.
