The WOODY shelving system draws inspiration from the traditional ladder shelving systems. No wall connection is required and the shelves can be placed freely as desired. The modern design uses industrial construction components and all materials are visible. The simplified and updated shelf system is build from oak beams, bent steel, and screws. Despite the appearance of being a lightweight construction, the oak wood provides incredible durability and stability. The soap treated finish of the wood gives a classic Scandinavian feel. The design was originally created as inventory shelves for the HAY HOUSE in Copenhagen but it received so much praise and requests for a home model, that this version was released to meet the demand.
