Well, almost. The designer, Sean Yoo, got his idea for this shelving unit when he visited Pompeii in Italy. There, he saw a roman wall which is build by means of the ‘opus incertum‘ technique. After some further research, he came up with the ‘Opus Shelving System’. It is very light in weight, but yet very strong. So is the price. Learn more about the shelves here.
