The speciality of the Hay Wooden Shelf is its clever construction: The complete shelving system is easy to mount and remove, since the designer Lucien Gumy designed the Wooden Shelf completely without any screws and holes. The single pieces are easily plugged together, offering more flexibility to the wooden shelf. The assembly without any tools is not the only easy thing: by mixing boards and bars of different lengths, shelves of different sizes can be built.
The design, which Lucien Gumy named “L’étagère en bois” and presented at the Cologne furniture fair in 2013, immediately won the junior prize of the fair, the [D3] contest.
Hay produces the Wooden Shelf with 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.
