Mate Shelf

c. 1996

by Florian Asche
for e15

The Mate shelf, designed by Florian Asche for e15, consists of six solid wood shelves attached with classic dove­tail joinery to the verti­cal wood planks. Don’t worry about knock­ing your seem­ingly precar­i­ous leaning plank of books and objects over. The designer has thought­fully included a discreet inset eyelet on the back side of the piece that enables secur­ing to the wall. Perfect for display­ing books or precious objects in a small space.
