The popular Insula collection, designed by design duo Ernst & Jensen, has been expanded yet again. Up until now, the Insula series has consisted solely of tables and a pouf. Now the series has moved from the floor to the wall, as the designers have challenged the possibilities of the wall with the design of three new shelves. ‘By lifting the furniture away from the floor, a new dimension is added to the room as well as to the furniture. Exploring that potential was the starting point for the creation of Insula Wall’ explains designer Anne-Mette Bartholin Jensen.
The organic design of the shelves stands as a contrast to the vertical wall surface, hence creating an interesting play where the shelves almost seem to be floating.
‘The shelves are supported by an asymmetrical shelf bracket that gracefully and precisely carries the corpus of the shelf, thus creating a distinctive interaction between that which is carried and the carrier’ says Anne-Mette.
A familiar feature from the Insula table collection is the asymmetrical bracket, which adds an interesting visual element to the Insula Wall and, as an effect, is what connects the entire collection.
The shelves are designed in three different sizes where the smallest one is a tray shelf in painted steel. The middle-sized version will be available in two different materials, either in painted aluminium or solid wood. Furthermore, you have the option of a levelled shelf or one that has a distinguished rim, which enhances the dynamic expression of the shelf. The third version is also the largest, and this can be used as both a shelf or as a small work station. All three shelves are mounted on an asymmetrical bracket, which creates a light and effortless look.
The different Insula Wall sizes can easily be combined, thus creating exciting compositions, which suits your home or office perfectly.
