Lap Shelving by award-winning designer Marina Bautier is a modular storage solution designed with simplicity in mind. Whether you need a single shelving unit for an alcove or an entire wall of shelving in an office, Lap 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.
Metal storage components include:
Bookshelf (U-shaped to keep books in place)
Small Flat Shelves
Material & Contents
Solid oak frame with a natural or black stain
Powder-coated steel shelves
Clear polyurethane lacquer
Assembly & Care
Two-person assembly required.
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.
