Corniches arose from the need for small spaces for the spontaneous storage of miscellaneous objects. 'The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too', explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, the Corniches storage ledges are a new way to use the walls in our living spaces. They are produced from high-quality plastic in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.
