Why is it Special? 

  Rib sideboard and cabinet are timeless and elegant storage solutions.
The design is inspired by the architecture of Nordic summerhouses from the 1960’s with wooden slats adorning the façade creating an interesting and decorative exterior. Rib continues this architectural heritage by having trapeze-shaped wooden panels, which add character to the design. The wooden slats create a visual break in the uniform surface of the front and add depth and dynamics.To further reference the source of inspiration, Rib is designed in oak veneer with solid oak slats and base and equipped with a push latch, making handles redundant. This creates a harmonious expression mirroring a stringent wooden facade.The Rib collection consists of a cabinet and sideboard available in either lacquered oak veneer or painted and lacquered oak veneer. Both variants have removable shelves that can be adjusted in height, giving the possibility to store any object or belongings.Rib sideboard is a larger storage unit, making it perfect for the living room as a TV stand or in the hallway to store shoes, bags, and other everyday essentials.The cabinet is more compact than the sideboard, making it suitable for the bedroom for storage of clothes, or for the dining area to stock cutlery and tableware. Whatever the purpose, the collection accommodates both limited spaces and larger environments.Use the members of the Rib collection on their own or combine the two variants for an ultimate storage solution. Create a coherent interior design by choosing the same color wood or mix them to create a dynamic and personal expression.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.

"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
