GUSTGUSTThe Bracket Shelf, designed in collaboration with Copenhagen-based design studio Frederik Gustav, is a floating piece for the storage or display of objects fabricated in solid oiled pine highlighted by a structural component, the bracket. This purely functional element turned into an aesthetic feature is mounted to the wall and supports the shelf providing stability—an architectural influence, a nod to timeless construction.
- Will develop a unique wood patina as it ages Variations in the oil and wood grain are natural Shelf is placed atop the brackets unmounted to offer flexibility and simplicity Each shelf can hold 10 kg (depending on wall material and mounting) Solid oiled pine

<p>The work of Copenhagen based design duo Frederik Gustav shifts across various functions, scales and contexts to create objects and installations that merge design, architecture and art. Focusing on the joy and excitement experienced through experimentation into building and construction techniques, their work transfers these emotions to the user through sensory objects that play with function, composition and materiality. The duo’s own curiosity towards materials such as wood is evident through exposed structures that retain and highlight the techniques that produce them. They utilise craftsmanship as an expression of narrative, illuminating stories centered around context of place, societal tendencies or notions of beauty. The process of each project assists in initiating the next, creating a strong structural and aesthetic language across their body of work. Operating from their workshop on the island of Amager, their practice is made up of Frederik Weber and Gustav Dupont. Text by Nikolai Kotlarczyk</p>
