Round Wall Shelf with an Innovative Bracket
The REB 007 Kaari Wall Shelf by Artek is part of an innovative collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, the concept of which is based around a particular table leg. For the shelf, the table leg has been transformed and serves as a bracket for the round board.
Combination of Wood and Metal
Diagonal, bent steel struts, which provide support for the tables of the Kaari Collection, instead provide horizontal stability for the round board of the shelf. The combination of solid oak and a metal, delicate bend give the furniture a surprisingly lightweight appearance. It is a construction that supports a wide variety of table tops and shelves - big and small, round and square, deep and high.
The surface of the round shelf consists of linoleum and a high pressure laminate (HPL), which absorbs light in unusual ways, or reflects it. Over time, these materials will form a very special surface.
