Marble is a luxurious material that brings a refined touch to any interior where it’s used. Today we are sharing one of such luxury pieces of furniture with chic modern design, which was created using traditional crafting techniques – such a combo can’t be unnoticed! The clip-on marble shelf follows the tradition of workmanship and practicing traditional craft while being held on the wall with modern technologies.
Stone Shelf by Michael Young is comprised of cool grey stone slab that takes on a 7.5° taper as it extends outwards from the wall. The marble is precisely fixed to three small wedges that fasten to the wall, locking into the stone using only gravity. The technique draws from woodworking practices, mimicking the methodology of dovetail joints and their ability to create a great deal of strength and resistance without the use of screws or fasteners. A synthesis of technology, art and craftsmanship, will soon be made available in a variety of different stones found across Europe, so you could easily find a perfect fit for your interior.
