General Information

The frames.

The shelf system is composed of frames and various inserts that can be hung in a freely combining manner. Base frames made of faintly varnished oak can be chosen in three height variations; they are all 1.06 m wide and 35 cm deep. You have the choice between three-level (Height 80 cm), five-level (156 cm) or six-level (193.5 cm) frames. Delivery comes without boxes, shelves, or tubs.

Chaos and cosmos.

The chaos marking the beginning of the world, as the Greeks imagined it, was a gaping emptiness. Nevertheless, the gods themselves tried to form out of it a well shaped, ordered cosmos, in which life could exist. They were partly successful despite the resistance posed by conditions on earth. The individual’s struggle to ward off chaos is much more difficult: he finds, in the best case, emptiness in a new apartment, but soon, and, time and time again, she finds herself surrounded by chaos in the modern sense of the word – by an unordered mix of disparate objects. So, everyday life becomes a strenuous battle, with the perpetually demanding goal, to form out of chaos a functioning cosmos, an inhabitable household.

Against specialisation.

Common methods include sorting and specialisation. A variety of similarly shaped objects are brought into order and structure in a book shelf; CD’s and DVD’s are placed in precisely-fitting shelves; wine bottles are set in a wine shelf and so forth. The size and form of an object determine its place in an apartment. Ergo, there are specialised shelving systems for libraries, kitchens, wine supplies and basement rooms. This here is different. From the outset, it has been conceived for the mass of heterogeneous objects, which must remain unhidden, close, and quickly accessible. It’s about not only storage space, but also the most freely possible formation of various spaces, where objects with different shapes, large and small, long and short, can find a special location. The highlight of this shelf system is the possibility it enables to obtain items, not only from the shelves, but also from the flat tubs and boxes of different volumes that extend the shelf, providing additional "depth dimension."

Delivery warning:

The shelf frames are delivered unassembled, and they can be mounted with the enclosed metal combiners. Delivery can, in the case of post-production, last up to 8 weeks.
