Where most people see random wood scraps, Elkamii sees the perfect medium for crafting artistic shelving. Inspired to reduce waste, both spatially and environmentally, the Brooklyn-based shop has created a set of shelves called Peliships that appear to simply float against a wall. Peliships are just a part of what we'll see from Elkamii at BKLYN Designs 2014 - read on to sneak a peek at their other offerings!
Peliships are just the tip of the space-saving furniture iceburg for Elkamii. Another delightful creation this Brooklyn collaborative design consultancy has made is the The Curved Bench, another delightful creation made by the Brooklyn consultancy, is the perfect place to sit down and put on your shoes. The bench evenfeatures an integrated shoe rack underneath and is made with a bent plywood board topped with a maple veneer atop a solid walnut leg.
Beyond wood Elkamii, works with metal to create its elegant Bird Bookends. Laser cut from steel and treated with a colored powder coating, these solidly built bookends are sure to keep your precious volumes from falling over while att the same time creating the simple imagery of a forest or garden. Elkamii will have even more creations to show off starting May 9th at BKLYN Designs 2014 including this set of bulbous porcelain pots, so stay tuned until then.
