The Doverail, designed by Hallgeir Homstvedt for Mjolk, is derived from the Shakers form-language and other wall hung objects seen at the shaker village. The rail is simply hung on the wall with one screw and is intended for the modern home where the shaker peg-rail is no longer common. The dove-tail shaped rail allows for vertical adjustment of the mirror or shelves through the turn of a brass knob, giving the product a flexible nature. Simple geometric shapes in combination with natural materials gives the product a light yet strong character.
The Shakers have many innovative and well known solutions for storage in the home and for their own production facilities.
