Danish designers Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Kasper Rønn named their company to express their dedication to “working with Danish norms and standards refined over hundreds of years,” says Bjerre-Poulsen, “rather than rejecting them in the endless search for new.” The sincerity of their approach – bypassing flashy design for good design – shows in the quality of their work. Folk Ladder Shelving (2017) is yet another reflection of that renowned quality, at once a celebration of minimalism and functionality. “We wanted to create a timeless shelving unit that you could afford for your first studio apartment and easily move around, add elements to and expand as your needs and spaces change throughout your lifetime,” explains Rønn. Ladder frames are made of elegantly shaped solid wood. Shelves are thoughtfully spaced and have thick solid wood front edges, which allow for sculptural details throughout. Top shelf weight limit 15 pounds, lower shelves 40 pounds. Wall mounting recommended. Made in Malaysia.
