Great Suspense


The apparent simplicity of suspension bridges have inspired artists and designers for decades. Design studio Outofstock, based in Singapore and Barcelona, is especially interested in the beautiful strength that occurs in tense string and wires (like the balance of their Vanity Shelf for Ligne Roset). The studio’s new Bridge Shelf uses bent metal to support planks of wood, all hanging from a wooden rod, beautifully suspending books and objects.
