Verso Shelf by Mikko Halonen
Remember the idea of using ladder in interior design as furniture piece? Well, Mikko Halonen went as far as making a Verso Shelf furniture, which looks like an actual ladder!
Verso Shelf Furniture
Mikko Halonen recently designed the Verso Shelf for a Finnish design company One Nordic. This furniture piece looks like an actual ladder, except it is a metal shelving system, that is very minimalistic and perfect for Scandinavian interior style. Of course, apart from using it as a shelf for books and magazines, the Verso shelf can be used for storage of other elements, as clothes, accessories – practically anything that you can imagine! The shelves are presented in white and black. As described by Mikko Halonen:
‘I had two starting points for this project: I wanted to design a bookshelf, which can be manufactured using as little material as possible. Secondly, I wanted the form of the bookshelf to represent a new, fresh way of thinking about furniture. I was consciously trying to avoid traditional solutions and to study what a bookshelf is at its simplest. The outcome was ‘verso’ – the functional bookshelf without actual shelves.’
