KORPUS SHELF / Story
Korpus Shelf is a series of colourful wall-mounted shelves created for HAY by Norwegian product designer Andreas Bergsaker. Based on the desire to create a durable multi-purpose shelf from recyclable material, Korpus Shelf is made from sheet aluminium, known for its lightness, strength and ability to be reused countless times. The aluminium undergoes an industrial stamping and punching process to be formed into the distinctively curved column and top. Keyhole slits at the back facilitate mounting, while concealed hooks in the column provide additional hanging possibilities. Available in a wide range of sizes and colours, these versatile shelves can be used in many different rooms in the home, such as a coat rack in the hallway, storing kitchen utensils, hanging bathroom towels or displaying ornaments in the living room.
