These SHELVES were originally designed to display ceramics in the communal kitchen of a co-living project, the shelves were designed to bear some weight. As the client granted the designer full trust in the outcome of the design, the process itself challenged Esther De Vos to find the delicate balance between stability and simplicity.

A simple design does not automatically translate to a simple design process. The challenge of finding the right balance between a simple design and a sufficiently stable shelve turned out to be the biggest challenge. At the bottom of the shelves, two smaller vertical brackets add to the carrying capacity of the shelves, but maintain the visual simplicity of the design.

Keeping full control of this design process is one of the key elements in Esther De Vos’ work. As a designer and maker, De Vos welds every design herself. For the finishing layers, she prefers coating the design with a transparent varnish, to reserve the natural pattern of the hot rolled steel used in the design. This ensures every design is one of a kind.

About the designer

Handmade furniture design by Esther De Vos, a sustainable process from sketch to finish. In every piece of furniture, you can feel Esther De Vos’ heart and soul. Combining steel, fabrics and monumental glass, her designs breathe pureness, simplicity and are easily accessible due to their timeless design. As a multi-talented designer, Esther creates, welds and develops her own designs into one of a kind pieces. Besides a limited collection of in-house furniture, Esther De Vos mainly creates custom made furniture solutions. During the course of her interior design studies at LUCA School of Arts in Brussels, Esther developed a special affinity with the creation and development of this handmade furniture. Simultaneously, Esther obtained her welding degree. It’s there she discovered her love for steel and its endless possibilities. Esther keeps her production in her own hands, allowing her to keep a careful eye on the quality and aesthetic of every single piece. A must-see collection, effortlessly combining raw materials with architectural lines.
