Inspired by inexpensive wire shelving often seen in dorms and first apartments, Gradient presents the idea of easy-to-assemble furniture in a more architectural format. Horizontal elements increase in frequency from top to bottom, giving the design its namesake “gradient” effect, while keeping items contained within the shelf. The sides and back of the shelf are secured by extruded ABS plastic clips, allowing sheet steel shelves to rest inside the structure. The result is a design that can be assembled in less than five minutes by one person, without the use of a tiny allen wrench. Photography by Blaine Davis.

The shelves are assembled sans tools and come flat-packed for convenient shipping and storage when needed. The outer framework and folded steel shelves snap together via plastic clips.

An update to his <a href="http://wardwijnant.nl/twisted/" data-wpel-link="external" rel="external noopener noreferrer">original collection</a>, the new Twisted includes a sconce, new seating, a larger cabinet, and mirrored accessories. By turning, twisting, and bending rods of steel, Wijnant forges a unique tension that can be seen in every piece.
