Manière noire collection
by Martin Szekely

Taking advantage of the low density of the material and its remarkable tensile and compressive strength, the Manière noire collection offers light and strong structures that multiply usable space. Entirely determined by their function, the simple shapes of these shelves are open to evolutionary uses. Made of a single material, the design is intended to be light and reduced to the strictly necessary. This simplicity reflects Martin Szekely’s ongoing research into applications and materials. This series of pieces is a set of alternating solid and empty shapes, square and rectangular modules.
