One definition of polar is "diametrically opposite" but Silvia and Antonia Terhedebrügge's spare shelf formed with two perpendicular elements reads as a harmonious whole. The German designers posit a vertical loop that bisects the shelf, acting as a divider and also as a mounting bracket. On its own or in combination, the Polar Shelf attractively serves in the kitchen, the bathroom or in a hallway.

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
