The Corniche shelves by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Whenever we don’t have enough space for a large cabinet or a wall unit, we tend to replace them with shelves. They provide us with the storage space we need and they take less space themselves. They can be easily integrated just about anywhere. However, in this case, space was not the problem. The Corniche shelves were designed with a sense of spontaneity.

The Corniche shelves are small structures that have different shapes and dimensions. They all share the same choice of materials, the same color and the same finish. They form a collection or a set of shelves but they each be organized freely. They are great for storing items of daily use. You can also combine several shelves to form a larger structure. Feel free to play with them and arrange them in any way you want. It’s what they have been created for.
