Studio F/F is part of the architecture firm Fabian von Ferrari founded in 2011. What initially started with creating spatial identities has now turned into a holistic, interdisciplinary venture into product design. Their creations are widely acclaimed and certainly prove that Studio F/F is on the right track with their specialised furniture series. All furniture pieces showcase a strong sculptural presence and clarity emphasised further through the use of high-quality natural materials and structural details. Another important aspect for all of Studio F/F’s designs is versatility. The construction is based on perfect joints and mechanisms, minimising the use of any screws. For instance, the shelving system ‘S25’ is assembled by interlocking singular modules to form a larger unit. Within the construction, modules can easily be shifted, rearranged or

extended by additional ones to suit personal taste or spatial requirements. “Proportions play a major part in the design process to ensure that every product keeps its harmonic style regardless of how customers arranged it,” says Von Ferrari. This focus on proportion and construction MNA modular candleholder.
