Sibylle Fleckenstein, Jens Pohlmann and Thilo Schwer, a trio of product designers behind the German brand Speziell have realised this expressive, seemingly offset shelving unit called ‘Aura’. Developed in uniformly white MDF, ‘Aura‘ appears to be backlit by splashes of neon hues radiating from the otherwise unnoticeable, hidden surfaces which have been covered with boldly-coloured paint. Apart from the shelving unit, the collection also comprises two additional designs: a low side table and a wall-mounted CD board.
More about the collection:
‘The radiating effect of colours forms the starting point for this range of small items of furniture created in 2006. The intense radiating ability of the colour itself means that the particular shade is reflected onto neighbouring white carcass sections or wall areas. Depending on the changing light situations in a room, this effect can be strong or subtle. The indirect colour impression gives the furniture a kind of “aura”.
