edit and repeat

tesso and mello

One of the key elements of modern is repeating simple, well-designed pieces for dramatic impact. Whether its bookcases, wine racks or wall art, making a statement in multiples is clean and easy.

When editing, choose pieces that are simple in design. This will allow the function or finishes to amplify.

For example, a tesso bookcase (above) on its own may seem “lightweight” with it’s clear glass shelves. In multiples they become part of the architecture of a room, much like a built-in. The final effect is that the eye goes to collected objects on display.

The texture found in print block panels is stronger when there’s simply more of it. And lastly, cellar wine racks are much more useful—and visually powerful—when rowed or stacked.

What items work in multiples for you?
