The Jet shelf is the result of a designer's play with surfaces and production. The light aluminum shelf has a spacious design and a clear-cut industrial silhouette, making it appear like a part of a jet fighter's aerodynamic construction.
An asymmetric relationship between a horizontal and vertical surface creates the Jet shelf's architectural design and comes together as an attractive platform for storage and display. The profile has small incisions, which create the attractive grooved surface texture. The grooves also ensure that the items placed on the shelf are less likely to slide.
The raw industrial look makes Jet a refreshingly alternative choice for a wall shelf.
Designed by Simon Legald
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
