Wooden sticks and joints of steel , the refered Soft Minimalism, offer an easy transform solution for a modern generation.
Wooden sticks and joints of steel are the components that transform the versatile Stick System into a shelving system, a clothing rack and a worktable; interior elements of strong constructions that are easily assembled and offer multi-functional solutions for residential use. As an add-on to the shelving system, light steel plates work as mobile shelves for placing books, plates, lamps and other objects.
Stick System is presented in various color combinations and wooden hues, and with maximum attention to detail, the combined wood and steel structure perfectly harmonizes with the chosen color palate for a clean, soft and light appearance we refer to as Soft Minimalism. The organic construction of Stick System is the creation of Czech designers Jan Plechá? and Henry Wielgus, who in recent years have earned recognition for their design philosophy.
"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 multiple options, which makes it a pragmatic interior solution to todays increasing needs," comments Jan Plechá?. Jan and Henry are equally as grounded as their design, and when asked about the most important aspect to consider as a designer, their answer is unanimous: "Being as responsible as possible to the planet and to the people that inhabit it".
Jan & Henry
Jan & Henry is the studio of Czech designers Jan Plecháč and Henry Wielgus, the duo behind Menu’s Stick System of design. Their goal is to create a collection of furniture for the younger generation, and their Stick System of shelving for Menu is a perfect example. Designed to meet the needs of twenty and thirty somethings – mobile and on the move – it can be extended and adapted to suit any space. We like that Jan and Henry are down to earth guys. When we asked them what was the most important aspect of their practice as designers they answered: “Being as responsible to the planet and to the people that inhabit it.”
