DESCRIPTION

What if you threw out the rule book and just decided to riff with a free hand? That's what the Copenhagen design group KiBiSi sought to do in the Slice Shelving System for Danish firm &Tradition. ”We wanted to redefine the bookshelf in an architectural and playful way. So we asked ourselves: What would a shelving system look like if playfulness and function were its main values?” Playful, yes, but also surprisingly practical and environmentally sound as it turns out in the hands of these designers–Lars Holme Larsen, Bjarke Ingels and Jens Martin Skibsted. Starting with the "slice" of plywood shelving, the unit is flat packed for delivery and then assembled for its pleasingly off-kilter appearance. "No expensive mold, a simple playful idea, rework and the back-to-basics attitude of plywood.” Proving even in matters of design that once you free your mind, the rest will follow.

ABOUT THE BRAND: &TRADITION

&TRADITION

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it:  "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."

With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
