Portal Display Shelf

US$3,500

About

PORTAL is a lightweight steel display shelf system with a circular wall mirror that is assembled from 4 welded steel sections with aluminum plates for shelving. The steel has a durable matte black powdercoat and can be color matched or customized upon request. An optional low center shelf is available as well upon request. Inspiration is drawn from the fine line work of MC Escher's early woodblock prints that detailed the Italian countryside. The result: architectural drama with minimal structure, a sketch of the classic arch in steel. Designers have chosen this shelving to highlight an object, sculpture, or plant in the center while adorning the side shelves with books, vessels, and other small objects. The PORTAL Shelf makes a perfect focal point in any room as a statement piece that hints at a timeless architectural detail.

Customization Options

Powdercoat Color, customized upon request as well as additional center low shelf.

About the Maker

ARCANA

Jack Eriksson and Dustin John are the design-duo behind Arcana Furniture & Lighting. Their work is a culmination of diverse backgrounds that offer a fresh, interdisciplinary approach to design. All objects are expertly crafted by their fabrication team in their Ridgewood, NY design studio. The result of their unique perspectives is one-of-a-kind, beautiful, thoughtful objects. The intimate relationship we share with the objects around us is the purest form of communication we have with the physical world. Dissolving the varnish that usually covers decorative and functional items awakens the user to the people and elements that have produced these objects. Our work forces the consideration of the components of the world around us. Use and dis-use of everyday materials creates an otherworldly tension that is at the center of our practice. We create a space that resides in this tension, one offering the user a dispret view of mass consumption and production that is usually only reserved for insiders. Our aim is to create new objects while at the same time accessing our specific and common visual and material histories.
