Concept

The Candy Collection reinvents the steel reinforcement bars normally used for concrete structures. Thanks to an industrial coating process, the common and usually unattractive rusty steel bars are given a new and seductive quality. The Candy shelves explore the beauty and simplicity of construction materials to create furniture. A commonly known bar, by means of a simple design and an industrial intervention, becomes a beautiful and innovative piece of furniture. Surprisingly, the purely functional texture of the bar becomes a decorative element once painted. The Candy shelves clearly refer to 1960’s furniture, through the use of a structure holding boards of varying and contrasted colours and finishes as well as perforated metal elements and accessories. The Candy shelves come in 2 different formats and the shelves are available in the five Candy matt colours (blue, green, white red and black), with separating boards in natural wood finish.
