For work or home, books or toys, Work is the shelving unit for everything.
Simon Legald has taken his inspiration from industrial storage shelving to create shelving with a clear function and a pure, minimalistic expression.
The Work bookcase has clear industrial references, but the raw look is refined by its unbroken sides and the matte powder coating that gives the bookcase an integrated appearance. The shelves’ folded profile adds a discrete detail to the design.
The bookcase has wooden frames and steel shelves that can be placed where needed. Work is available in modules with 6 or 3 shelves, as well as corresponding expansion modules with one open side for attachment.
Work is the perfect all-round shelving unit, wherever there is a need for storage: offices and shops, or in homes in the living room, office, nursery or hobby room.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
