At Maison & Objet: Blume by Pedrali
With such a profusion of floral designs, you’d think it were spring. After yesterday’s Mirabilia biophilic porcelain tile by Marca Corona, today, we’ve got Blume System by Sebastian Herkner for Pedrali.
However, in contrast to yesterday’s intricate vines and flowers, Pedrali’s Blume offers a subtler evocation of natural forms.
The flower here is captured in the faceted detail of the shelving unit’s legs, a form designer Herkner says departs from the standard legs which are “typically just a tube… we wanted to make something more elegant and more decorative.”
The flower-shaped profile achieves Herkner’s aim. The extruded aluminum legs create an enhanced textural allure, also aligning them with Herkner’s earlier Blume chair and table for a cohesive collection that can be left in aluminum or painted in a variety of colors.
Beyond the innovation of the legs, Blume System is a light and airy shelving unit: a steel structure fastened with aluminum casings that promises many options for the surface, from laminate to more upscale options like marble, “allowing for utmost customization and versatility.”
