ABOUT LOOP SHELF
Loop Shelf is a highly flexible and modular shelving system. The shelves can be used individually or combined to create a complete shelving solution. The specially designed loop-shaped brackets are mounted directly onto the bamboo shelf, creating a light and exceptionally strong piece of furniture.
Designer Sebastian Jørgensen explains: “…my intention with Loop Shelf was to reshape the traditional shelf and give it more form and function. The shelf is very thin and yet 26 cm deep to give it more functionality and the turned bamboo parts add strength and are also used for mounting the shelf.”
The Loop Shelf furniture parts are made from certified moso bamboo, one of the most sustainable natural resources the world has. We Do Wood only work with certified plantations. This is our guarantee that our bamboo is grown without any chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Furthermore the bamboo processing and furniture manufacturing is done without the use of harmful chemicals and all adhesives used during processing and production has the lowest formaldehyde emissions in the industry. The brackets are available in brass or black steel, which can easily be recycled when the product has reached end of life.
THE DESIGNER BEHIND THE CONCEPT…
“Sustainability is quintessential to our choice of materials and techniques. we simply place an honour in creating the most environmentally friendly furniture possible.”
Sebastian Jørgensen is the designer behind We Do Wood. As a trained furniture- and cabinetmaker, Sebastian is an experienced craftsman. However, Sebastian’s understanding of design originally comes from the world of art, which creates a different approach than most. Sebastian’s design process is a bit like painting: he usually make a sketch and goes directly to the workshop to make 1:1 mock ups and prototypes. Eventually Sebastian usea his background as a cabinet maker to prepare the piece for industrial production.
