The Watn Blech Shelf Sags Slightly, Offering Unexpected Stability

A clean line and perfect firmness are generally expected from bookshelves, yet the Watn Blech Shelf asserts itself with a discernible slump. One might be inclined to assume that the storage system is precarious and ineffective, but such is not the case.

The minimalist Bernhard Osann piece is manufactured from a thin sheet of aluminum, powder-coated for a finish of either white or black. Accompanying this primary component is some hardware to fix the ledge to the wall at both ends, as well as an understated stabilizer to support the surface's drooping middle. The product can bear a surprising amount of weight without bowing significantly and falling to the floor.

The Nils Holger Moormann Watn Blech Shelf is ideal for holding various possessions in any room of the home. Stats for Subtly Slumping Ledges Trending: Older & Chilly
