Industrial Iron Pipe Storage Shelf

This piece is a customization of an existing product.
The design interest here is in re-imagining the connection details rather than relying on the threaded pipe fitting as is usually done. The typical construction method for these popular pieces lacks structural rigidity, vertical continuity and dimensional consistency as a result of the high number of connection points and variability of each individual part.

In this design, the flanges and bell couplers are welded at precise location providing a pressed fit over the width of the pine planks. The planks are then bolted over the continuous verticals, clamping them in place and locking the system together. In this way the hardware detail along the edges of the pine planking, once merely an aesthetic embellishment, is now an essential structural element.

    I am over-the-moon happy with the handsome bookshelves built for me by Joshua Ingold. I sent him specific dimensions for a wall space and he delivered to the last detail. The bookshelf structure is the centerpiece of my new loft and has generated many compliments. The piece is regal in its quality - the shelves and fittings are constructed with solid craftsmanship and exquisite style. I could not be happier.
