JET SHELF 80 CM.
Design by Simon Legald.
The Normann Copenhagen Jet shelf is the end result of mixing surfaces and production by designer Simon Legald. The aluminum shelf has a spatial design and a clear industrial silhouette, which makes it resemble a part of the aerodynamic construction of a fighter jet.
The asymmetrical mix of the horizontal and vertical surfaces creates the architectural design of the Jet shelf and is a wonderful way to showcase your valuable items and store books, for example. The profile has small incisions, which creates the striking grooved surface structure. The grooves also ensure that the items placed on the shelf move less quickly.
Dimensions:(l) 80 x (b) 21 x (h) 11 cm.
Material: Jet in white and black: powder-coated aluminum
Jet Shelf in silver and champagne: aluminum with an anodised surface

About the designer:
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
