Moebe creates a flexible shelving system joined by wooden wedges.
The Moebe studio has designed a storage system that can be assembled without tools and uses wooden wedges to hold the shelves in place.
Moebe said a “smart and simple” design approach is needed, and designed the flexible shelving system to fit any environment. The designers wanted it to be built without the need for screws and tools.
The shelves are held together by a set of wedges, which are grooved in precisely angled holes in the wooden slabs. Rounded steel uprights hold the shelves in place, allowing them to be placed at any height.
As the wedge is pushed from below, any additional weight on the surface makes the joint more firm and stable.
The uprights come in three heights and can be joined to extend in width and height.
«The use of wedges as a key principle gives users complete freedom to play with the system, placing the shelves in any position and adapting them to their specific needs», said the Danish design studio.
«The intelligent construction and the lines achieved give this furniture its refined appearance».
The shelving system, which is presented in oiled oak and black stained ash wood, is the brand’s largest piece of furniture to date and will be launched together with a new coat rack and a full-length wall mirror.
Founded in 2014, Moebe is managed by its partners Martin De Neergaard Christensen, Nicholas Oldroyd and Anders Thams.
The studio creates products for both its own brand and others, and is dedicated to interior decoration for clients and private companies.
«We design based on the principle of creating simple constructions, without gluing, welding, using screws, etc.» said Anders Thams.
