FAQ

Who is Aska?
Aska is a Stockholm based design studio that has just launched a set of unique perforated oval shelves perfect for books and objects. Our design studio and its shelves have received awards at Swedish interior fair “Formex” as well as the international trade fair “Ambiente” in Frankfurt, Germany. Our name “Aska” means ash in Swedish, which is also an ancient Nordic name and that of our daughter.  

What colors are the Aska shelves in?
The current range of shelves are in light grey, beige and black, all in a soft deep matt color, with a smooth finish. Other colors are available on special request for trade professionals. We aim to introduce other colors over time.

How do I mount the Aska shelf?
The Aska shelf must be attached to the wall with screws and plugs. You will find two small holes in each arch. The holes are 4mm in circumference. We recommend a 3 mm screw depending on the material of the wall. Recommended tools: spirit level, drill, 2 screws, 2 plugs, screwdriver. One tip is to use a magnetic spirit level, the shelf is magnetic.

How do you mount the loose plate in the shelf?
The purpose for this loose plate is to have a plate for your books and objects, when used vertically. You just slide it in, little bit angled upwards, with the wings upwards, and it will be fixed at the curve. Could be a bit tricky at the beginning but it looks good with few books.
