Inspired by archiving and archive levels (show, classify and protect) Levels is a furniture made ​​of three parts. Levels play on the visibility and accessibility of objects it contains : the user shows or hides elements according to the value he gives to them. The formal vocabulary is borrowed from cages, geometric and streamlined archives, and fences. Each level corresponds to a set of bars, rhythmic and spaced according to their destination. The lower part, which are hidden personal items, is completely covered with bars. Opaque, you would not guess the contents and can only be accessed by the intermediate levels. The intermediate portion dedicated to books is composed of bars spaced about eight inches to allow sliding his hand and take a few pounds. The books tend to hide the vertical lines with bars. Finally , the upper portion , designed to highlight the selected objects, is defined by eight edges defining the volume of the case and allowing a greater visibility. Thus, it is the variations in the pace of bars that prioritize the different levels of visibility and accessibility of content. Levels questions the value of objects and encourages a hierarchy of personal effects.
