During the refurbishment, we discovered a unique structure made of concrete, which we have let shine through to create a contrast with the delicate, custom-designed furniture. A perfect example is the Kresta Design shelving lacquered in coral colour.

“Genuine” shelf:
It is a light, handmade shelving made of 1mm thick sheet metal and a 10mm hollow tube with baked enamel finish.
Made to be light and firm.

It is custom-made, from an architectural pattern that is shaped to fit the client’s site.
The rigidity is provided by diagrammatic elements with different angles that create a score, a stave where books and objects are collected as musical notes.
It aims to be a simple and delicate design, a functional yet expressive object, a calligraphy in the air inspired by Paul Klee’s Angels.
