Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects for MAGIS, TIDE is a modular lightweight shelving system which embodies the transition from the heavy mass of traditional wooden furniture to the minimal thickness of plastic surfaces.
The design refers to geometries and mathematics of minimal surfaces – those which are equally bent in all directions, haveing zero average curvature and the smallest area spanning a given contour.
The design uses the geometrical characteristics of each module to generate a high degree of variation and composition.
