I designed a modular shelving system for our bedroom in Brussels, using terrazzo tiles and bricks from the stocks of Rotor DC, a local cooperative that recuperates materials from construction sites. 

This first iteration of the RotorHacks series paves the way for a design process based on modular assembly of construction materials, forming a bridge between product design and architecture.

This design came from the way that I usually organise my clothes, vertically and per colour.
Both materials came together as a card castle, to form a hybrid of a bedside table and a clothes shelf. The perforated nature of the clay bricks was used to weave them together, forming a sturdy structure that holds together.

This construction principle can be declined with other brick shapes and tiles for further applications.
