It’s a necessity. Minimalist, hoarder, maximalist, you need it. The humble shelf. A place to drop your keys, store a growing library, display a piece of art, or perhaps…simply left to be.
And that’s where Zaha Hadid’s Desk ‘Dune’ shelf comes in. Part of the Dune collection, it is a sculptural piece, with Hadid’s signature organic lines and unrestricted edges. Used here in a residential design by Kelly Hoppen. It may not be where you rest your book after a night cap, it demands attention for itself; becoming the feature and not the bystander.
The Circulum collection by Raketa, a Slovenia based design house. Designed in such a way that at a distance the slight dip or 'wave' in the center of each tray is not visible. Completely functional, the wave keeps items from sliding off the smooth surface. Genius.
The Shift by Fabian Kolpack is he ultimate design solution for an ever-expanding library.
I couldn't possibly end this post without a mention of the Libri by Scandinavian design house Swedese. A unit we've used in our designs. It's clean lines, and modular system enables it to adapt into the perfect storage and/or sculptural solution.
