With “Shelf” – a project for Ceramiche Coem – tiles take a step beyond their
traditional function as a covering material and become a support. This new
dual application adds to the appeal of a material hitherto used merely as a
finishing element. Full-body porcelain stoneware is processed to obtain an
L-shaped element. Two or more elements can be used together to create
endless combinations, opening the door to a variety of options: bookcases,
bookshelves, display shelves and support surfaces for any setting.
In other words, “Shelf” is a modular system that can be used as an element of
micro-architecture, shaping new geometries with a ceramic dimension.
