Since 1959, German artists Bernd and Hilla Becher dedicated themselves to registering the remnants of the industrial age in Western Europe and the United States through photography. In the 20th century, many of these buildings were pulled down because they had served their purpose and were no longer a tenable economic proposition. In many cases the photographs taken by the Bechers remain the only visual record of these ‘anonymous’ structures.

Inspired by the photographs of these industrial buildings, Dutch designer Mieke Meijer created the Industrial Archeology series of furniture. She has restored the disused industrial shapes and placed them in a new context. By reducing the scale and playing with volume, Mieke Meijer creates autonomous interior objects with an architectural feel.

During Salone del Mobile 2010 she presented ‘Gravel Plant 01‘ and the collection was continued with ‘Gravel Plant 02‘, first presented during London Design Festival 2010.

The third piece in the series, ‘PowerPlant 01‘, wasn’t based on a Becher photograph but on a marquant Eindhoven building, heritage from the Philips company. Mieke Meijer translated it into a low table with two conical shaped lamps.

‘Cooling Tower 01’, the shape of which is obviously derived from a cooling tower, was transformed into a lamp constructed from over 300 parts.

So what do you think? We love the idea behind this!

The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.

With infinite combinations and practical applications, the Montana System is a late 20th century classic. Peter J. Lassen established Danish company Montana Møbler A/S in 1982 and designed its extremely efficient shelving system. Comprised of 36 basic modules in four depths, the system includes shelves, doors, drawers, trays and lighting.
