The acronym R.I.G. (Rudimentary Interior Geometry) defines a universal modular system for shelving and shelves based on a thin, linear structure made of AISI 304 solid stainless steel, in embossed black or brass painted. The R.I.G. system, developed in several versions that can furnish different spaces, has been designed by Mikal Harrsen, Danish industrial designer and founder of the MA/U Studio brand, which is part of the Boffi | De Padova group.
In 2012 he established MA/U Studio together with Adam Hall. MA/U Studio is a brand with focus on
design that offer functional, timeless and minimalist furniture design of high quality.
“As a designer I live through visual impressions. A design object is to me like a picture to be developed
– the creative vision is captured mostly through the senses. I regard the design process as the
individual filter which I use when defining a physical form or object for this vision” – Mikal Harrsen.
With more than two decades of experience as an independent designer Mikal Harrsen has gained
solid know-how, and is recipient of several international design awards:
Red Dot Award
IF Design Award
Communication Arts Award
ADEX Platinum (American Design Award of excellence) Design Prize of e Federal Republic of Germany
