About poise

A modular shelving system that defines spaces without becoming a focal point

POISE is a modular shelving system

POISE is designed by Anders Hermansen. It delicately delineates its surroundings without taking up much space, physically or visually. Designed as a simple sculptural expression, it exudes great elegance yet doesn’t dominate the room. Its modular elements can be stacked or placed next to one another.

Easy to arrange in different configurations

The system is based on T-shaped elements that are easy to arrange in different configurations, giving endless possibilities. POISE comes in either T-shaped or corner modules for the ultimate in versatility. You can compose any shelving arrangement you need, with or without corners, in L-shapes, T-shapes or X-shapes. No matter what dimensions or shape the room, this system can be configured to fit – and it functions not only as shelving but also as a room divider.

A simple and flexible shelving system

POISE is self-supporting so there’s no need to place it by a wall, and it looks effortlessly simple. Additional elements can be added to the system organically, without marring the delicate sculptural aesthetics or gaining any excess material.
