Staffan Holm’s Lift shelf is inspired by the scissor lifts dotted about construction sites in Gothenburg where he lives.
Made from solid ash, its a piece that manages to reflect urban beauty whilst retaining the practicality of its source material: Lifts shelves ship flat to save on packaging. Once unwrapped, they can be assembled in a matter of minutes without recourse to tools. Extra Lift shelves can be stacked alongside or on top if you need extra storage space or want to make a bigger statement.
The poetry of handcraft and the wonders of modern technology are the sources of Staffan Holm’s inspiration. The Swedish designer worked as a carpenter before entering the renowned School of Design and Crafts (HDK) in Gothenburg, where he later founded his own studio. It’s here that he realises his vision: to convey human qualities and emotions through his high-quality, beautifully made pieces.
