“LOG” meaning a round trunk of a tree. We have created an attractive shelf that looks like a log built in an orderly form. Beech is used for a 30mm diameter wooden frame, and linoleum, made from natural materials is used for the surface of the matte textured shelf board. The bright and calm atmosphere of beech and the tranquil expression of linoleum gently enhance each other's charm and create a high-quality accent in the space.
It is a shelf with a simple structure consisting of a ladder-like frame and shelf board. Since there is no backboard and both sides are the same, it can be used as a partition.
The core material of the shelf board adopts a honeycomb structure (*) for the purpose of weight reduction. Beautiful details with great attention to detail are carefully made by craftsmen in the suburbs of Asahikawa, Hokkaido, one of Japan's leading furniture manufacturers. With an adjuster that supports the inclination of the floor surface to stay the shelf stable.
A paper-made structure like a honeycomb with regular hexagonal tubes laid out on a flat surface.
