A MODERN INTERPRETATION OF A 1950’S DESIGN CLASSIC.
The original Pira shelf designed in 1954 was as contradictory as the man who conceived it. Olle Pira (1927-2018) was a traditional master cabinet-maker who crafted cherry, maple and matured oak with age-old skills. Yet he won a place at the renowned Konstfack school of art, craft and design, the birthplace of concepts ahead of their times. And became the first Swede to win a gold medal at the Triennale in Milan in 1952.
Design: Architect Anna von Schewen and industrial designer Björn Dahlström, from the 1954 classic Pira by Olle Pira.
Materials: Poles made of extruded aluminium in black grey or white. Shelves of sheet steel, with an integral ridge. Cabinets, organisers in walnut or white oak.
