Wall Shelf with an Innovative Bracket
The REB 008 Kaari Wall Shelf 200 x 35 cm 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 shelf ledges. The shelf offers 200 cm of room on each of its three tiers, meaning there is plenty of space for folders, books, pictures and other items.
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 shelves. 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, low and high.
The surface of the three shelves 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.
