Mara, a modular shelving system crafted by French designer Guillaume Thireau, offers adaptability for any setting. Constructed entirely from oak, it features structural elements inspired by traditional carpentry techniques, where intertwining oak sections create a unified entity akin to the base of a roof. Infused with rustic design elements and a touch of Mid Century Modern style, Mara’s structural and sculptural components are meticulously crafted on a wood lathe. Their rich, dark hue is achieved through a chemical reaction with a rust-based solution, enhancing the oak’s natural tannins and adding depth to its surface.

It’s a simple system, with the elements screwed together. It is made up of a fair variation (wide and thin) of black units (8), 1 shelf of 150cm x 28cm, 1 shelf of 120cm x 28cm, 1 shelf of 90x28cm and 2 squares of 28x28cm to assemble the units together. Specific screws and bolts will also be supplied. Each shelf is pre-drilled at various points to allow the units in different composition.

A price reduction may be applied if you purchase several items from the Mara collection. The Mara shelving unit has an oiled finish for the wood.

About Guillaume Thireau Visit Showroom →

Guillaume Thireau is a designer with a passion for materials. He grew up in the wood shavings of his father, a woodworker, and his mother, a seamstress. He chose an artistic education, graduating with a degree in visual arts from the University of Rennes 2. He continued his education specialising in design at the Beaux Arts in Brest and Rennes, where he obtained a bachelor's degree (DNAP) and a master's degree (DNSEP). Since, he has been working at the frontiers of art and design and design, focusing on materials and volumes, creating small collections of object, unique pieces, and larger-scale installations. Attached to sensitive materials, charged with meaning and full of history, that make up our everyday environments, Guillaume Thireau applies to show through his work what they can reveal. His relation to the work of materials, especially the wood, brings a certain sensitivity to his projects that contrasts with the minimalist aesthetic sometimes brutalist which emerges from it. Through radical forms and large volumes, Guillaume tries to show nature of these materials, sometimes pushing them to their limits. He questions their identities, their folklores, to bring us back memories that speak to us, making his expressive projects according to different contexts.
