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.
