Concept

A stainless steel frame constructed of 3 × 3 cm stainless steel tubing holds brackets for glass shelves that may be placed at any height. The brackets are sand cast and available in aluminium or brass. Nickel or patinated brass models are also available. The stainless steel is available in matte or polished finish and the 10 mm glass plates in clear or satin finish.

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.
