Too late for sedate
Børge Mogensen wasn’t interested in sculptural shapes and experiments. He preferred historical furniture types that he then tweaked for the better. A very readable monograph presents the Danish designer.
Ridå designed by Joel Karlsson of Krook & Tjäder Design in 2010, is a magazine rack, a brochure stand, a mirror, a writing board - or a combination of all these functions. Ridå contributes to creating a cosy feeling with its pockets in pressed felt - ligh
t grey or anthracite - that helps to absorb and reduce background noise. The magazines or brochures peep out from behind the textile panels like faces from behind a curtain. Ridå is available in oak and birch in a choice of eight standard finishes. Choose
a wooden back panel, felt pockets in light grey or anthracite, mirror, whiteboard, glass writing board or a noticeboard covered in Comfort fabric. All back panels are magnetic. Ridå for wall mounting comes in heights of 742 mm and 1451 mm and in widths o
f 371 mm and 742 mm. The 371 mm wide version hangs either vertically or horizontally on a metal suspension strip.Ridå is also available as a single-sided or double-sided freestanding construction, 1574 mm high and in widths of 371 mm or 742 mm.
