Graduate is an admirable suspended structure consisting of a single unit anchored to a wall or to the ceiling. Slender steel rods support the adjustable wood and aluminium shelves, which seem to float in mid-air thanks to invisible mechanisms. It has a capacity load of 125 kg, evenly distributed per linear metre. Lightness and transparency in a volume made up of air.

Jean Nouvel

Jean Nouvel was born in 1945 in Fumel, France. His approach to design comes from a need to create objects for his own architectures. This approach created the Less table which was produced by Molteni&C. for the headquarters of the Cartier Foundation. The Ateliers Jean Nouvel design activities reflect a desire to develop an "architectural design."
