'Parete'

Essay

A storage unit based on a modular design. The high shelving units lean on the wall at a slight angle, and are accessible from the side. They are fitted with rollers which make it possible to change their position along the axis of the wall. The angular position of the units makes a provisional impression, and so underlines in a visual way the aspect of mobility. The closed front of the shelving consists of a magnetic panel that may be used as a pinup surface. The covering does not just conceal the content of the shelf, but also – when several elements are positioned alongside one another – amounts practically to a second wall, which makes it difficult to guess at the volume of unit as a whole.

Comment by the nominators:
An original contribution to the theme of 'mobile furnishings', which gives a new interpretation of the principle of the rolling shelf system in both functional and aesthetic terms.
