Gnomon is the part of a sundial that casts a shadow. The word Gnomon comes from Greek language and translates literally as “one that knows or examines”.

Gnomon is a simple and elegant wall shelf that can be mounted in four different orientations. Like its namesake the deign is as much about how shadows are cast on a surface as the physical form itself. Using two or more shelves together works as a wall feature creating an interplay of both shape and negative space.

Designer Information

Frag Woodall is an Industrial Design graduate from The University of Technology Sydney. His design studio MR.FRÄG focuses on interiors and products such as furniture, lighting and home-wares. 

The central ideas within his design philosophy are to allow the products to have functional honesty, material integrity and a sense of poetry, wit or humour that communicate and connect on a human level. These individual elements contribute to the design, however it is ‘storytelling’ that is the true artful activity that binds together all the elements. Imbued in every design is a sense of capturing a single idea or feeling and expressing that with legibility and clarity so the product can be engaged on a referential level. “It is these less tangible notions that I try to pursue and when they are present I feel that a design has more relatability and clarity”. 

Woodall’s emphasis while running his studio is on a blended consideration of conceptual and commercial design. In this approach creative freedom and business values work together to develop an honest expression of design intent, materials and context.
