BRUT By pulpo
Open glass and marble bookcase
The brut shelves demonstrate a meeting point between clean lines and rough edges. Simple in appearance, they play with materiality to present a series that is visually light and structurally grounded.
Our latest collaboration with French designer Ferréol Babin, the brut shelves expose his unique ability to mix material and composition. Using different types of glass as the structural boundary of the series, solid marble slabs appear to float within.
Three precisely cut edges meet the glass sides, leaving a roughly broken front. Utilising off-cut marble from Austria, drilled holes assist with the clean break of each piece.
Combining a smooth glass exterior with raw cut marble, the brut shelves are an exercise in contradictions. The heavy marble shelves appear as if to float within the structural glass exterior, with a raw cut front to the off-cut marble slabs further emphasising a unique combination of elements and textures, bringing together varying degrees of colour, texture and transparency into this captivating series.
The shelves are produced from off-cut marble slabs with a raw cut front edge. The exterior of the shelves are created from sandblasted, smoked or prolifit toughened glass. Bubbles, streaks and other variations in size and colour are part of the production process, and not defects of the design or production.
Available in three combinations: sand blasted glass with white marble, smoked grey glass with dark green marble, and a rippled profilit glass with jade marble.
