(jiří macek) The Fingers system of shelves, thanks to which one can feel at home like on a sunny forest plain, was designed by Belgian architect Arne Quinze for his own Quinze & Milan brand. He has created a restless statue of order and accidentality from seemingly unrelated and chaotically composed lines of bearing elements.
The Arne Quinze studio has recently attracted attention because of the remarkable implementations on the borderline of architecture and art in public space. As in the case of the library design, the inter-disciplinary conceptual projects deny any clearly given shape. Thus, they sketch a nest or a modern forest – something that is closer to nature than any other building no matter how much it is derived from nature – in structured buildings assembled into complicated compositions from boards and branches. The Fingers system of shelves transfers the poetics of an original studio into a close environment of a home or office. It is an unrepeatable touch of nature and chaos of imagination – softly and simply.
