The young Japanese designer Chicako Ibaraki designed this minimalist bookshelf, made of rubber painted stainless steel. ‘Weave’ was awarded at this year’s 100%Design Tokyo.

Two flat bars running perpendicular at right angles create the bookshelf. The irregular braiding shape changes when viewed from different angles. The bookshelf make it possible to put 200 books. Rubber paint prevents slipping books.

At this year’s 100%Futures in London the Japanese designer Chikako Ibaraki presented this minimalist floor lamp. The lamp is reduced to what is staticly absolutely necessary – a metal base which keeps the slim line diffuser in balance.

“I saw a line of light shine in, through a small window. It was simple, clear and sharp. The room’s stillness was created by the light. I wanted to capture the line of the light” the designer explains.
