Founder and designer Rona Meyuchas-Koblenz was fascinated by the flexibility of metal folding technology and the metal itself being a commonly used material.
Made from metal and therefore magnetic, the wall mounted shelves – available in a landscape or portrait form – are folded and powder coated in different colours on both sides – sulfur yellow and pure white; while the triangular containers are the offcuts which are also folded and double sided powder coated – signal blue and dark blue, or tomato red and wine red.
Furthermore, the containers’ edges are not completely jointed. “Instead of closing the gaps after folding and welding the edges, I thought the gaps would make a nice design detail whilst using less resources,” says Meyuchas-Koblenz.
She adds, “Offcuts are common during manufacturing, and I always bear this in mind when designing a new product and try to re-use the material where possible.”
All the pieces from the Ridges collection are laser cut and created using folding machinery; no welds or mechanical fixings are involved in the manufacturing process. The pieces are sold as a set, each comprising a wall mounted shelf and a container:
– Wall mounted shelf, landscape (440x550mm), sulfur yellow and pure white + Container (310x110mm), signal blue and dark blue – RRP £280
– Wall mounted shelf, portrait (590x400mm), sulfur yellow and pure white + Container (240x100mm), tomato red and wine red – RRP £280
A single colour option is also available for the above sets (RRP £210).
