We started off this project thinking about floating shelves and planks. As this unit is situated outside the kids room of the apartment, we knew that it had to be load bearing and not just decorative. As a result, we designed and fabricated a hollow triangular extrusion as the shelves. Using 3/8” plywood for the shelves, glued to a 1/2” backing, we could ensure a stable connection as well as create the illusion of shelves floating off the wall. Additionally, different colors painted on the inside of the shelves added a playfulness for the kids.
