The Wall Shelf 112 B, a creation of renowned designer Alvar Aalto from 1936, features a sturdy birch veneer panel supported by unique lamella loops that double as brackets. These loops were meticulously crafted to require the strength of two individuals to shape them into a single-seamed bracket. The brackets can be positioned above or below the panel, making it highly versatile and practical for various spaces. Additionally, it serves as an excellent bookend, adding to its functionality. With a perfect blend of functionality and style, this wall shelf perfectly shows Aalto's fondness for utilising natural materials in his designs.
