I wanted to create a robust free standing system that balanced rigidity with visual weight.
Heavy Stock is a low, sturdy, and simple shelving system. The steel shelves resemble sheets of paper with their thin profile and folded corners. The radius created by the folded corner of the shelf is mirrored on the edge of the maple legs to create a curious connection between the two materials. Once mounted to the legs the shelving is rigid and stable without bracing. Heavy Stock can flat pack and be arranged in an infinite number of configurations.
