‘chuck’ is a shelving system developed by designer natascha harra-frischkorn of hafriko, which stemmed from the idea to create individual flexible room for just about any object. at first glance, the simple wooden wall shelf unfolds itself into a system made up of flexible wooden planks that adapts to the objects it preserves and displays. consisting of six wooden planks with two stainless steel locking collars placed at either end, the timber bands expand and contract wedging the desired objects in between them, whereby each object slightly changes the behavior of the shelving system. it allows one to experience the intermediate room, to exploit the possibilities of the elements and to design an individual space. the planks of wood can be lifted separately in order to display your favorite items. depending on the quantity when filled, the planks stretch out and the wall shelf takes on a different shape. the result is an intriguing interaction of flexibility and stability, a structure of waves that rise and fall which easily creates room for all of your favorite items.
