Designed by the late Paul McCobb – a pioneer of contemporary democratic design whose creations filled homes across the world with lasting, quality design – Fritz Hansen’s Planner™ Shelving series combines his signature graphic aesthetic with an elegant expression. This latest design joins the Planner coffee table, mirror, lamp and magazine holder to create a versatile range of products for any space.
Named after its ability to help shape the design of a room, the simple yet striking shelving is available in three versions, each in varying heights and configurations. The practical and decorative unit works in any space; as a bookshelf, display unit for favourite objects or even as a room divider where multiples can be attached together.
The Bauhaus-inspired lines of each unit are crafted in durable powder-coated steel with a slightly matte finish. The joints are welded by hand and gently rounded to soften the overall expression. Diagonal rods on the two larger designs lend added support, while creating visual interest in the negative space. Shelves are cut from natural oak, bevelled at the edges to fit seamlessly with the frame – one of many small but significant details.
