A graduate of the furniture design program at Sheridan College in Toronto, Jordan is drawn to design for its potential to affect people's lives. He consistently attempts to reconsider the way we design, manufacture and use objects with the goal of encouraging more thoughtful relationships with the objects we own.Books appear to defy the laws of gravity when resting on this imaginative and quirky Conceal "L" bookshelf, part of the award-winning Conceal family of floating shelves by Umbra. Attach the shelf to the wall with the included mounting hardware and secure a book onto each end by sandwiching the shelf's brackets between the books' cover and pages, securing the cover with the built-in clips. Stack additional books next to the end books. The books obscure the bracket from view, creating the optical illusion that they are magically staying on the dramatically sloped shelf.

The U+ Studio Collection, which offers a range of sophisticated aesthetics from raw to sleek, can be found exclusively at contemporary design retail specialists.
Umbra began in 1979, when boyhood friends, Paul Rowan and Les Mandelbaum joined forces to create exciting, everyday products that alter the overall aesthetic of a home, beginning with a printed window shade unlike anything then in the market ("umbra" means shade in latin).
Twenty-five years later, Umbra's award-winning design team - 22 men and women from all over the world and notable outside product designers, all under Paul Rowan's direction - remains the heart and soul of the company. Its offices worldwide now house more than 450 people.
