Corniches by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra



Corniches arose from the need for small storage spaces to spontaneously keep items. 

“The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before ping into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too”, explains Ronan Bouroullec. 

And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather inpidual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in the living space.

Available in 3 sizes and 6 colours - white, black, Japanese red, dark grey, khaki and orange.
