Becky Šik, Untitled, 2019, Powder-coated steel, lacquered steel, stainless steel, stained and oiled birch plywood, webbing

Inspired by modular furniture units, particularly mid 20th century German and Scandinavian designs, Becky Šik uses welded mesh to create light, geometric and adjustable shelving units.  

The powder-coated units can be combined with shelves made in varying sizes from a number of different materials such as wood, birch plywood (which can be hand finished with coloured edging) and steel, expanding the unit’s functions and varying its aesthetic. The hanging mechanisms offer a playful solution to height adjustability and adds colour.
