The “DIO” shelf is the result of an exploration of sneaker aesthetics with regard to shapes, materials, and the underlying subcultures that make its foundation. The wild and intrepid aesthetic of sneakers gives rise to thoughts about volume, color. and material which, when applied to an item of furniture, fall into the expressive category that designer Gustav Winsth considers essential if one is to create a stimulating and personal home environment.
“DIO” has imitated and developed the positive trend of adding a share of granulated waste material when casting the sole of the sneaker. By examining the recycled rubber granulate as the principal material when casting complex geometries and exposing the raw waste, value is created in a climate-smart aesthetic.
The gradient dyeing on the aluminum profiles was achieved by an experimental anodizing technique to create a shifting transition, from the expressive design language and material of the foot to the shelfs crisp form.
