Lap Shelving


Find your local stockist

The Lap Shelving by award-winning designer Marina Bautier is a modular storage solution designed with simplicity in mind. Whether you need a single 1m shelving unit for an alcove or an entire wall of shelving in an office, the lap low shelving is adaptable to work in different environments.

Starting with a single unit, you can add extensions to provide you with enough storage. Choose from a frame filled entirely with sturdy steel shelving to house your collection of tomes, or a mixture of trays, deep & shallow boxes with shelves to store a variety of paperbacks and objects.

Marina designed the shelving system with this modularity and adaptability from realising the strange way people store objects in a box or on a tray that is then placed on a shelf. Instead, her solution removes the need for a shelf replacing it with a powder-coated steel metal box or tray that hangs from the solid oak frame.

The name "Lap" refers to how the metal overlaps the wood structure. How you arrange the components is up to you, and they can be rearranged at any time.

  • Expand the solid oak frame width by adding any number of extensions
  • Made in Lithuania
  • Suitable for contract use

Metal storage components include:

  • Bookshelf (U-shaped to keep books in place)
  • Tray Shelf
  • Flat Shelf
  • Small Tray
  • Small Flat Shelves
  • Deep Box
  • Shallow Box



Assembly for Lap Shelving

Care notes for Lap Shelving

  • Use a dampened, soft, non-abrasive, lint-free colourless cloth to wipe the entire surface of your wood timber and powder-coated metal, moving in the direction of the wood grain.
  • Dry your wood timber and powder-coated metal using a second non-abrasive cloth.
  • Remember to wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  • You do not need to polish the wood as part of your regular maintenance, as we finish our products with a matte, non-yellowing clear polyurethane lacquer for its natural appearance and durability.
  • Never use wax-based polish or ammonia-based cleaning products on your wood timber.

Marina Bautier

Marina Bautier follows a discreet but very human approach to her design process.

For her, the richness of life does not immediately mean luxury or ostentatious forms. She gives priority to simple structures and easily manufactured materials, but she also attaches great care and detail to the appearance and the manufacturing of each product.

Though sober by design, her products have been characterised by their generosity in shape and size—such as the Lap shelving which has a simple profile offering more space for the contents. Marina Bautier starts from the observation of ordinary daily activities to develop her products to fit better in to our lives, to be comfortable and useful.

Speaking to CoffeeKlatch, Marina said "As I child I made wooden objects and wood is simply my favorite material. It’s accessible, easy to manipulate and warm. And because of the nature of wood, no two wooden objects are the same. Wood is sustainable, and I realize people do care a lot about the objects they surrounded themselves with at home.

"In my designs, I go for simplicity and try to minimize the production process as much as possible. I want to get the best out of my material and give each object a warm feeling. Simplicity and serenity are back in demand, in which nature plays a more important role, especially in the life of city dwellers.

"I find it fascinating to see how people live and how they create a certain atmosphere in their homes. Next to that, my daily life often serves as a starting point, for example when a specific piece is missing in my interior. When I’m designing, I love observing antique furniture, which often leads to progress in the construction of my designs."
