KALO present flat pack multi-tier shelf at design days dubai 2016

 

 

 

the ‘multi-tier shelf’ system designed by KALO, contains three maple shelves which rest on vertical slanting legs without the use of any hardware connections. pinned to the topmost shelve with custom-made solid brass pins, the design allows the legs to fold up and down allowing one to construct the assemblage easily.

the connection points where the two pieces come together are highlighted by a curved ridge which creates an organic impression upon the design. the maple legs which drop down from the surface fit snugly into leather collars which prevent them from sliding down. the adaptable system was first exhibited by KALO at design days dubai in march 2016 along with a coffee table, stools, and a lounge chair, all of which express a unified visual language.
