chilean born, new york-based designer and artist sebastian errazuriz’s ‘metamorphosis’ bookshelf
is hand carved from baltic birch plywood. it was created for the exhibition of his furniture work ‘beautiful premonitions’
which opens april 28th, 2011 at the cristina grajales gallery in new york. originally based on the thick ivy that he used
as natural shelves for his childhood garden toys, errazuriz collaborated with woodworkers from the horm
furniture company to develop the piece entirely in italy.
