Shinya Oguchi, a design with Japanese roots and similarities with Dieter Rams’s functionalism.
It has been surprised this year in the Salone Satellite 2017 inside the Salone del Mobile 2017, with these complete and simple designs that they obtain the good design that Dieter Rams was proclaiming.
Pleats is a made shelf of carton designed by Shinya Oguchi. Its great lightness, it owes to a thickness of only 0,7mm. But the pleated one that gives it form to the shelf on having mounted it, offers it a structure of great resistance.An ideal shelf for books and heavy objects. In addition, this folded structure, as that of an accordion, allows it to bend easily, even diminish to a total very small thickness.
A good solution for moves and to move the furniture for the house. But also for the logistics and comercialicación of the product.
This zigzag of its structure, not only it has this function. Also it serves to fix other shelves and to obtain a modular system of storage. Thanks to its form and resistance, tant can be used by it as shelf as a table.
Shinya Obuya has achieved a light, folding, resistant, modular, recyclable and very functional shelf. This one is Dieter Rams’s good design.
Shinya Obuya continued with the same material of Pleats, with a gray carton of 2mm of thickness with the one that constructs two boxes to construct the Stall Clock, one small clock of table.
Without use of adhesive products facilitating the recycling of the same object. It joins with clamps. The relation between metal and carton turns out to be very elegant for its contrast between cold and warm, in good proportion.
Not only it is an aesthetic and conscious question with the environment. It gives an inflexibility stronger than if it was attached with glue.
The same object does simultaneously of packing with the same material of gray carton, though there are three colors: gray, dark gray and bluish grey.
