No. 5

Modulär förvaring för Abstracta/Voice

Detta är gyllene snittet. Och roten ur fem.

Eller är det ett förvaringssystem?

A new system based on the square root of five.

 

No. 5 - Modules and fittings are standardised in the proportions inherent in “the square root of 5”, and can be built and re-built many different ways without losing their fundamental design and harmonious proportions.

 

When designer Jesper Ståhl started thinking about a new storage series for Voice, he was convinced early on that the time was right for system furniture. A system approach that would be as much about mathematical problem solving as design. He was familiar with the golden ratio, but what proportions would be most appropriate for a storage system in the year 2012 and forward? Was there a number that could create aesthetic harmony while also enabling practical storage? The answer lay in the third prime number, the sixth Fibonacci number: 5. Or to be more precise, the square root of 5. Because No.5 is a system where everything is based around a basic module and where everything is held together by the proportions in the square root of 5, it can be built and re-built in many different ways. The system can be fitted with doors, drawers or shelves in numerous combinations. It can be mounted on a wall or placed on a plinth, frame or even on castors for optimal mobility. The colour of the back of the furniture is one way of giving your storage that personal touch.
