JULIEN DE SMEDT / JDS ARCHITECTS ON THE DESIGN
"How to be specific and generic altogether? Shelving systems have a tendency to achieve one concern but never both. We decided to dimension shelving units based on the generic measurements of things to store and display while allowing for them to be combined according to specific needs and desires… the result can be at times a random stack of boxes or a coordinated grid of efficient storage… or both!"

ON THEIR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
Our projects are humanly designed, politically engaged, financially viable, and structurally realistic.
JULIEN DE SMEDT
ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
Nordic design has evolved in the past five years from a veneration of the simple and pure lines of the classics to something more fluid - through its involvement of multicultural issues, political presence and opportunist productive methods. Its outcome has become something more eclectic and colourful, while the consistency of the classics is still oddly maintained, as if it were genetic.
