Stockpile is adding two major pieces to our furniture collection: the Bastion low shelf and the Caisson micro bar. Working within the design language introduced by the Perimeter prototype, hand-blackened steel surrounds and supports solid oak panels, using reverse-mounted hardware to subtly join these sharply contrasting materials.
Despite its minimalist appearance, the Bastion is a heavyweight. A pair of sharply-angled steel frames border the front and back of the shelves, extending past the wood's edges to stand freely in space. The elegant, simple geometry can be configured to custom dimensions with only slight adjustments, and the novel construction allows the entire piece to ship in a box barely eight inches deep, while keeping assembly simple and straightforward.
With the Caisson, the Perimeter design language expands to case goods - in this case, a chic micro bar. Its bold, clean lines can complement the Bastion or function as a stand-alone piece. The lid swings open on concealed hinges and creates a sturdy counter for mixing drinks, its "handles" blending back into the body when shut.
The Bastion and Caisson will be available for sale early September, both made-to-order with a 4-6 week lead time. More Perimeter pieces are in development, including a refined version of the original coffee table prototype and a writing desk.
