Artek Wall Shelf 112
Alvar Aalto, 1936
Wall Shelf 112 employs lamella loops as brackets to support a substantial birch veneer panel. The particular lamella loops used in the creation of Wall Shelf 112 require the strength of two people to bend them into shape and come with a single seam. The brackets can be placed both below and above the panel, in which case they also serve as bookends. Elegant and practical, this wall shelf displays designer Alvar Aalto’s affinity with natural materials.
