Concept

This oft-imitated shelving system is based on an original Ghyczy design from 1970. An aluminium mount supports a glass shelf, which is anchored by setscrews.

The Pioneer series
The foundational series under the GHYCZY name, this avant-garde collection pays homage to the clamping technique that made Peter Ghyczy a pioneer in his field. After playing with fabricated 15mm glass plates first developed in 1960, the Pioneer Series was designed around glass being the central construct. Each glass plate floats within these designs clamped in several places, essentially holding the construction together.
