‘Heavy Stock’ shelving system by D Calen Knauf

Young Canadian designer Calen Knauf has recently realised this simple, sturdy yet visually light shelving system called ‘Heavy Stock’. Assembled from paper-thin, white steel sheets and low, untreated maple legs, the modular system allows for multiple configurations and is entirely flat-packable.

More about the design:

 

‘I wanted to create a robust free standing system that balanced rigidity with visual weight.Heavy Stock is a low, sturdy, and simple shelving system. The steel shelves resemble sheets of paper with their thin profile and folded corners. The radius created by the folded corner of the shelf is mirrored on the edge of the maple legs to create a curious connection between the two materials. Once mounted to the legs the shelving is rigid and stable without bracing.’
