Rodolphe Pupille – Tilt
Diploma project with Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Christian Spiess, Maddalena Casadei, Benoît Chastenet de Gery
“Tilt” is a shoe rack made of birch plywood. The two-way mirror front enables users to see themselves while providing a showcase for the shoes on display. The opening direction of the drawer is adjustable, meaning the “Tilt” shoe rack can be placed in a corner or in the middle of a wall. The inside of the drawer is lined with linoleum as a reference to collectable furniture. The neutral background enhances the details of each shoe while protecting the wood. Finally, a gradation in the opacity of the mirror highlights the worn pair, as a reinterpretation of angled shoe mirrors in shoe shops.
