Fréquence shelf for Kataba

Fréquence shelf by Jean Couvreur presented at Maison&Objet

Dezeen Showroom: presented at Maison&Objet, Jean Couvreur's minimalist Fréquence shelf for Kataba was created as a multifunctional piece of modular furniture.

The Fréquence shelf is one of a selection of products available through French furniture and design fair Maison & Objet.

The shelf can be used as a bookcase, base unit or room divider. It is made up of a number of geometrically shaped modules.

The bookshelf consists of individual modules

These can be combined in different ways to create a design that can be adapted to suit its interior, ranging from a small bookshelf close to the floor to a larger room divider.

Fréquence is "the expression of a sober and efficient construction principle based on the exploitation of all the properties of aluminum," Kataba said.

This construction principle has reduced the loss of material in its manufacturing to less than 10 per cent.

The sturdy aluminium makes for a hardy shelf with an industrial feel, which is offset by its organic shape.
