Geometry

 

Ruche is inspired by the bee hive shape.

 

It is made of flat sheets that together make hexagonal and triangular shaped cells. The structure, made from only regular shapes, is isostatic and therefore is extremely strong and can resist massive loads.

 

Ruche is made of 12 flat, numbered parts, and is easily assembled to a strong and solid three-dimensional shelving unit in just a few minutes.
