Integrated design studio Beauparlant has announced the launch of a series of wall-mounted shelves designed to be adaptable and flexible to a variety of environments. They will be exhibited at the Interior Design show in Toronto January 19-22, 2017 in Studio North, booth #NS20.
Originally designed as part of a custom kitchen for a private residence, the wireframe shelves were used to improve the visual sightlines of the space. “I wanted to create strong horizontal lines in a galley kitchen where the upper cabinets were interrupted by various windows and clearance requirements”, says Beauparlant principal - Philippe Beauparlant. The thin frame structure of the shelves reduces the visual mass and brings a sense of elegance to the space. This adapted version of the shelves as a stand-alone product is improved with non-directional lighting and natural oak surfaces.
The wireframe shelf is designed for various residential or commercial applications. The 12x12mm frame profile could be finished in a wide range of colours and the wood shelves fabricated from laminate oak are oil finished for a natural texture and colour. Beauparlant is currently welcoming possible manufacturers.
Beauparlant is an integrated design firm with a focus on architecture, furniture and interiors that tell a unique story through balancing innovation and practicality. Established in 2003, their portfolio of work represents a wide range of projects from private homes, retail commercial interiors and furniture. Their forward thinking approach and philosophy have resulted in a number of design awards and their work is regularly published online and in print.
Philippe Beauparlant and his team value the positive impact that meaningful design can have on individuals and organizations, developing furniture and interiors with honest materials and enduring appeal.
