expanded mesh series

Expanded mesh is omnipresent around us and usually has a very industrial connotation. Yet it is an economical material, light weight and cost efficient to produce: a sheet of metal can be turned into up to three expanded steel sheets without any waste like perforated metal.

This self-initiated furniture range is an attempt to use this material in a domestic environment, taking advantage of its lightness and structure. The mesh is perfect for cable management as well as for fixing elements like the base and accessories such as the shelf or lamps. 

Project realized in London / 2011
