The brackets for the wall shelf are made of birch wood and the tray from birch veneer. The shelf is varnished and is available in black and white editions.

Alvar Aalto also used this shape with the brackets for his 109 wardrobe and 115 umbrella stand.Curved shapes of individual parts such as the brackets of the 112A wall shelf or table and chair legs are often found in the work of Alvar Aalto and are considered one of his trademarks.Manufacturer Artek recommends a damp cloth for cleaning his wooden products.
