The Wooden Shelf by the Danish manufacturer Hay appears straight-lined and clear. The simple design is charming and it has more advantages than you might think.
The specialty of the Hay Wooden Shelf is the clever construction: The complete shelving system is easy to be mounted, since the designer Lucien Gumy designed the Wooden Shelf completely without any screws. The single pieces are easily plugged, offering more flexibility to the shelf. The assembly without any tools isn’t the only easy thing: different board sizes and tubes are also mixed becoming shelves in different sizes.
The design, which Lucien Gumy named “L’étagère en bois” on the Cologne furniture fair in 2013, won the junior prize of the fair, the [D3] Contest.
Hay produces the Wooden Shelf of massive, matt painted oak wood in different pre-configured sizes. The shelf’s depth is always 38,3 cm. The shelf’s height is available in 177,6 or 213,5 cm and the length varies between 120, 184,2 and 376,8 cm.
