or Call to Order

The Mate shelf, an exquis­ite creation by designer Florian Asche for e15, brings together form and func­tion in a perfect union. This unique shelf features six solid wood shelves seam­lessly joined to the verti­cal wood planks using classic dove­tail joinery, show­cas­ing the beauty of traditional craftsmanship.

While the design may appear as though it chal­lenges gravity, rest assured that you won’t have to worry about your cher­ished books and objects tumbling down. Florian Asche has thought­fully inte­grated a discreet inset eyelet on the back side of the shelf, allow­ing you to secure it to the wall. This not only ensures stabil­ity but also adds to the Mate shelf’s unique aesthetic.

Perfect for creat­ing an elegant display of books or show­cas­ing precious objects, the Mate shelf is an ideal addi­tion to small spaces where style and func­tion­al­ity are para­mount. Elevate your inte­rior design with this beau­ti­fully crafted and thought­fully designed piece by Florian Asche for e15.
