We recently received information about an elegant furniture project, for the ones looking to add a white touch to their home. According to the press release we were sent, “LEAVES is a collection of storage units that takes inspiration from nature, designed by Italian architect Angelo Tomaiuolo and produced byTonin CASA. The delicacy of a three-dimensional printed leaf creates original compositions. For those who strongly desire a personal and delicate living space, meant for a house that doesn’t need to be big in order to be beautiful, but that is thought with functionality and personalization to give shape to one’s emotions”. Beneath its elegant appearance, the design comes with a high degree of practicability. Have a look at all the hidden storage spaces, making this unit versatile, fit for a variety of interiors !
The best modular shelving systems will encourage individual expression and personal style. An investment in both design and practicality, they are something that we choose to live with (design is arguably always a choice). Famed industrial designer Dieter Rams once remarked: “I am convinced that a well-thought-out design is decisive to the quality of a product. A poorly-designed product is not only uglier than a well-designed one but it is of less value and use. Worst of all it might be intrusive.” This quote, from a speech on ‘Design by Vitsœ’ presented by Rams in New York, 1976, remains pertinent today.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
