Sonic Surfer


The designers’ initial idea was to make a shelf, but when it was done it seemed a shame to put anything on it. Maybe it’s a sculptural piece. They leave this dilemma, and the challenge of what object to put on it, to the new owner. It conjures images of speed, celestial bodies and cosmic forces. One could imagine riding on it through space so it has been named “Sonic Surfer”.
