REB 008 Kaari shelf, 2015

REB 008 Kaari shelf designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Artek.

The Kaari Collection is the result of the first collaboration between the French designer brothers and Artek. Based on a simple, yet intelligent standard component of a metal loop, Kaari - meaning 'arch' in Finnish - is a collection that comprises rectangular and round tables as well as a desk, a wall console, a wall hook, a small round shelf, and larger shelves. 

The principle behind the pieces is simple: the vertical load is supported by a wooden part. Bent steel banding provides elegant and transparent diagonal support. The interplay between the solid vertical board and the metal band gives the base a surprisingly light appearance and creates a distinctive linear silhouette.
