A beautiful, refined storage solution available in a short credenza or tall bookcase.
“In looking at books, they are usually resting on a perpendicular surface,” says designer Chris Connell. “And I started thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if they could rest on something that wasn’t digging into its nice cover?’” From this idea, Lean was born – a storage solution with diagonal side features that allow books to rest softly and flush against the edge of the structure. In addition, soft close hinges and drawers make for a gentler storage experience.
From the initial idea came wider and narrower versions of Lean, and the ability to allow the products to stand-alone or in a group for increased storage. “It’s very modular and flexible,” says Chris. “So you can have it either side of a fireplace at home, or you can combine them together in the office. It’s very versatile.”
