We guess it was only a matter of time before an eco-friendly salute was made to one of the "greatest games of all time": Tetris. Originally exported out of the former Soviet Union and onto computers and home gaming systems worldwide, American furniture company Brave Space Design is now producing a line of geometric bamboo shelving shaped by the hugely popular game, one that you can literally play with.
The Tetrad Bamboo shelving uses modular units of durable bamboo which are based on the "tetriminos" (a term which refers to the orthogonal, stackable shapes in the Tetris game, invariably composed of four square blocks, in different compositions). These human-scaled, functional "tetriminos" can then be rearranged in any way desired, and can be attached to each other, walls or left free-floating to display books, spices, or what-have-you.
Capitalizing on the warm tones of bamboo, the shelves will blend into most spaces, and are not treated with toxic finishes; organic herbal oil and a non-toxic water-based finish are used instead. Waste from the production process is minimized by the way of using CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) milling. Best of all, it's a fun, sustainable and spatially-challenging way to build up whatever configuration one might need.
Ooh, we can almost hear that tinny Tetris soundtrack now. More information and purchase on the Tetrad at Brave Space Design's website.
