Coupé shelf, designed by Finnish design studio Poiat.
The form of the Coupé shelves draws upon the influences of roof racks from vintage sport and coupé cars.
The aim of the design has been to create a multi-purpose piece of furniture that works well in small spaces like kitchens and bathrooms and fills the needs from hanging towels to store everyday items like toothbrush or spice jars.
With their sculptural and frame-like structure, the Coupé shelves works well even when empty. About the designers: Poiat architecture and design office is a Finnish collaboration of three young designers Antti Rouhunkoski Timo Mikkonen and Marco Rodriguez.

Poiat is a Helsinki-based architecture and design office established in 2010. It designs objects and interiors - from private homes and corporate headquarters to retail spaces, restaurants, cafés and furnitures. In 2014 Poiat launched its own furniture collection. Founders Antti Rouhunkoski, Timo Mikkonen and Marco Rodriques have a simple philosophy of design: creating a strong atmosphere and vision. Aesthetics - the fact that something is beautiful - can outweigh functionalism if something simply feels good. The aim is always to create spatial experience and integrated spaces that are atmospherically unique. Material, with layers of history and visual cultures, bold but long-lasting, classic yet lively. The Poiat hand print can be seen in flashes of the past and future, dreams and contemporary details. One of the office`s recent projects has been a new retail concept for the Finnish suit brand Turo: a complete entity ranging from furniture to the smallest details. Poiat´s award-winning and internationally-recognized Lavitta collection of tables and chairs is being sold in more that 10 countries. The fundamental elements of the collection are quality materials and the quiet luxury of beautiful forms.
