Details: As early as the late Paleolithic era, there may have been an 'Amber Road', a trade route of amber from Scandinavia and the Baltic states down to the Mediterranean.

"It is said that the amber road may have caused the bringing of the bronze age to Scandinavia due to the flood of new information coming in from the south when trading with cultures such as the Mycenaean's and the ancient Egyptian's." says Baltic Gold designer Nick Ross.

With an almost monumental presence, as its shape and proportions reference monolithic sculptures, the shelf evokes the bronze age and the material.

Over time the material darkens in UV light, which means that after years of usage it will contain the ghost shadows of books and objects which filled its shelves, "glimpses of its past use".
