‘Drizzle’ shelving system by Luca Nichetto for Gallotti & Radice

Inspired by the long, vertical lines of the falling rain, the award-winning Venetian designer Luca Nichetto has developed ‘Drizzle’, an aptly-named shelving system for the Italian crystal specialists Gallotti & Radice. Unveiled earlier this year during Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the linear, grid-like bookshelf is composed of multiple metal elements that support and frame the shelves which are made of either transparent or frosted glass. Available in multiple colourways, ‘Drizzle’ can be arranged in a virtually infinite number of configurations. (more…)

Tubular steel chairs, or perhaps aluminium and glass creations might indeed be the first designs that come to mind when thinking of Charlotte Perriand’s pioneering pieces. One of modernism’s most significant furniture designers, and one of the few women who broke the glass ceiling of this then firmly male-dominated profession, Perriand’s most famous designs include the iconic LC4 Chaise Longue or the LC7 Swivel Chair, both of which were developed in collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. On this recently-reissued oak wood-and-aluminium shelving collection however, the French designer worked on her own. Called ‘Nuage‘ the Bauhaus-coloured modular series was inspired by Japanese architecture (Perriand spent there two years working as a ministerial advisor on industrial design) and comprises five models of varying heights, all of which feature characteristic sliding panels which come in either anodised aluminium, or in red, blue, green, yellow, grey, black or white.

‘Aura’ shelving unit by Speziell

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…)

'Corniches' shelving system by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra

Inspired by an idea of ‘impromptu storage area,’ France’s famous design duo Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have realised this versatile, customisable shelving system for the Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra. Available in three different sizes and in either high-gloss black, white or Japanese red, ’Corniches’ ‘are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions’ which can serve many purposes within practically any environment. The design was launched earlier this year at Salone del Mobile in Milan. (more…)
