Eiffel
by Jørgensen-Depping

A flexible shelving system in sand-cast aluminium and lacquered wood.


Eiffel
In this flexible shelving unit, sand-cast aluminium elements form the load-bearing construction. The shelves are made of lacquered wood but could also be made of alternative materials. A system of integrated fittings attach the legs directly to the shelves. This makes for a flexible system that is easy to assemble, and which can be used to form a variety of geometrical solutions, including a rectangle, a square, a triangle or a circle. The design process explored the challenges and possibilities of sand-cast aluminium and a simple structural principle: a leg that is repeated and combined with horizontal shelves in varying forms and sizes.

Jørgensen-Depping
Jakob Jørgensen, designer, b. 1977
Line Depping, designer, b. 1978

The duo’s work is guided by functional possibilities and requirements and driven by the desire to test and explore materials and structural principles. Their inspiration springs from the hands-on process in the workshop, as they refine and experiment with the form, based on modelling and prototyping. In this creative process they often explore a principle of form or construction that intrigues them and test the capacities and textural qualities of materials. Their ultimate goal is always to create a simple and straightforward solution that matches the usage situation and setting.
