jan plechac & henry wielgus join stick system shelf for menu


czech designers jan plechac & henry wielgus have presented ‘stick system’ at maison & objet 2014 for menu, a multi-level shelving unit with fixed joints that can extended and be adapted to the space it inhabits. presented in various color combination and material hues — and with a maximum attention to detail — the combined wood and steel structure perfectly harmonizes with a chosen color palate for a clean, soft and light appearance. ‘we wanted to create a clever and aesthetically beautiful design solution for a modern generation: stick system can be extended and adapted to fit different spaces. it enables multiples options, which makes it a pragmatic interior solution to today’s increasing needs,’ plechac explains.
