Project title: Pierce

Brief: The concept behind this piece was to develop a collection of furniture with as few components as possible. It is a playful experiment with physics, using only the form of each component and the geometry of the construction to produce a sturdy shelving unit without fixtures or fittings. Pierce not only lends itself beautifully to the task in hand but also addresses logistical challenges of pieces as large as this one.
The shelves are steam pressed to create a lipped edge around the parameter to prevent items from rolling way and have ample flat surfaces to display our wares as well as the more unusual shaped Art-books we all have tucked away.
