Oak and Beechwood Folding Shelving
Fix fixed: Shelf with folding mechanism
"Thirty spokes meet in a hub: On the nothingness of it (the empty space) rests the usefulness of the cart," says the ancient Chinese philosopher Laozi. So why draw from the (material) full when function and stability can be achieved just as well, if not better, by other means? A rather simple idea and yet as a design approach as original as it is practical: this shelf does not consist of a solid frame and shelves to be hung in it, but of beech and oak wood slats that are connected at the interfaces by means of threaded rods. It is therefore not a shelf that results from the constructive addition of side walls and shelves, it is a shelf "in one piece", for whose construction the gap, the nothingness in Laozi's sense, plays the decisive role. First of all, this has a logistical advantage: when the threaded connections are loosened, it can simply be folded as a whole - transforming it into a kind of board only 7 cm high. Now it can be transported without any problems: within the apartment for remodeling plans, but also during a move. Once it has reached its new location, all you have to do is tighten the threaded connections after setting it up and aligning it with the help of a spirit level or angle. For the assembly and disassembly, you only need an Allen wrench (enclosed) and a few minutes of time - we also recommend two additional helping hands.
Shelf, room divider, "side shelf"
But the advantages are not limited to logistics. First of all, there is the visual impression created by the slat construction: although the shelf is hardly inferior to a solid wood shelf in terms of load-bearing capacity, it does not appear bulky or space-consuming at all, but leaves a decidedly delicate impression. Therefore, it is recommended as a wall shelf as well as a perfect room divider: On the one hand, thanks to the well thought-out design, no stabilizing back cross is required (the included insert serves visual purposes - accordingly, it can, but need not be used), and on the other hand, when you stand sideways in front of it, your gaze falls not on a self-contained piece of furniture, but on an airy, transparent row of white lacquered beech rods. Moreover, the open construction can be used practically, for example, for the hanger with the evening dress. And if you don't mind reaching for the Allen key a little more often, you can occasionally use the smallest shelf model or the sideboard as a "side shelf" for the reference library.
When not in use, it rests, folded to save space, wherever a niche can be found; when it is needed, only the transport route and a few turns of the screw separate the user from a fully operational piece of furniture - the quality of the threaded connection also accepts regular assembly and disassembly without complaint.
