RECTO VERSO

is a wall mounted shelf constructed of 2 mm perforated sheet of anodized aluminum. The idea of bending perforated metal sheet allows shapes that are not manageable in a traditional step-by-step bending process. All the seams of a single piece are bent by hands following the assembly diagram.

This line "almost invisible" can be indefinitely combined to create true divided wall libraries in order to value books as a piece of art. Aluminum is also an environmentally friendly choice because it is an infinitely recyclable metal.


Recto Verso est une étagère murale produite à partir d’une feuille d’aluminium anodisé de 2 mm d’épaisseur. L’idée de plier des feuilles de métal perforées autorise des formes qui ne peuvent être atteintes par le façonnage progressif habituel. Tous les angles d’une même pièce sont pliés à la main suivant le schéma de pliage.

Emmanuel Gardin

Is a creative but also a shrewd manager who likes to broaden the horizons of its activity. With a holistic view of our society, the basic needs but also its excesses, he wished to develop intelligent products.

"A designer is not a creator but a person who designs tools, which meets needs. Make a product to follow a fashion does not interest me. I see in a circular way while, at the moment, we operate in a linear system doomed to failure because we have limited resources. "

He thus gives priority to sustainable and environmentally friendly materials: wood, aluminum, glass ... "Let's create less but better", what he proposes is to reduce the impact of production and increase our attention to more efficient and sustainable products. For this purpose, the multifunctional aspect plays a key role in designing many of its products.

Emmanuel Gardin est un designer mais également un entrepreneur avisé qui aime élargir les horizons de son activité. Fort d’une vision holistique de notre société, de ses besoins fondamentaux mais aussi de ses dérives, il tient à développer des produits intelligents.
