The Folded Shelf Swas designed by Johan Van Hengel for the brand Muuto.
Van Hengel is a Rotterdam-based product designer who reduces everyday objects to their bare essentials then adds new layers of complexity which enhance their functions. Creations like the De Vorm chair and portable Tor side table have made his name, but the Folded collection that he crafted for the Danish label Muuto could be his finest contribution to modern design.
The "folded" name refers to the shelf's structure, which mimics the look of folded paper, while the "S" shows that this is the small version. The Folded Shelf Sis 51cm long, measures 6.9cm wide and is 22cm high. Made from robust steel and finished in a range of colours, the Folded Shelf S is designed to bolt onto the wall, while a set of hooks underneath the main shelf adds additional storage capacity. This makes it ideal for those who need to store garments and documents in the same setting. However, it's really a handy storage accessory for all environments. Equipped with convenient hook mounts, these adaptable shelves can be slotted into interiors easily, adding essential storage space when desired.
