shelves Corniches by Vitra
Corniches arose from the need for small storage spaces to spontaneously keep items. “The same way that we hang our beach towel on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small storage spaces in every- day life, too”, explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create.
Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put the soap dispenser in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in your living space.
