Wooden wall shelf
Solid Wood, Oak
Shelf in oil-treated oak heartwood with a wrought iron belt-like bracket.
The designers explained: “This is a simple shelf in heartwood, suspended from a central belt-like iron bracket. It appears to lie in perfect equilibrium, supporting the well-balanced articles positioned at the ends. The metal support wraps around the convex wooden base, bending and creating a material illusion: the first impression is that it resembles a hide belt - the image that inspired the project is actually the traditional belt our grandparents used to carry their books to lessons before the schoolbag was invented. However, the wooden shelf panel hides a metal plate that has been fixed to the support structure, producing a more stable and resistant article”.
