9 light / lightweight shelf

9 light  is an extremely lightweight shelf (9 kg!) made from high-tech materials. Aluminium poles, which are covered with a textile membrane, carry the entire load and create a floating impression. A selected choice of high quality materials and their appropriate use generate this lightweight solution.
The basic idea behind this design is to create a shelf, which is easy to assemble and easy to carry, which is also illustrated by a handy bag. 9 light is an ideal companion for all modern nomads.
