The Pliè Shelving System

View all 19 Photos

A minimalist storage solution for the home or the office.

Designed by the Italian studio From Industrial Design for furniture and accessories brand Util, the new Pliè shelving system is as versatile as it is modern. The minimalist aesthetic and clean lines help the shelves blend into virtually any decor, while the wide range of options cover any storage and display need. “Pliè is about two main points: one concerns the simplicity of its construction and the details that arise from designing carefully and with an attention to detail; and second, it’s about how a versatile system of objects can shape a home or office interior and impact on its atmosphere,” explain Cesare Bizzotto and Tobias Nitsche, founders of From Industrial Design.

The flexible system offers an array of storage solutions for the home or the office. Thus, it naturally becomes Util’s first ever shelving design and an ideal addition to the brand’s range of furniture. Exploring the possibilities of aluminum sheets, the two designers added thin layers of the material to the side walls. While using minimal amounts of aluminum, the duo gave the objects a subtle industrial look . At the same time, this technique highlights the products’ craftsmanship; subtle folds show the attention to detail and care that went into the making of every piece.

The Pliè collection includes wall-mounted shelves in various sizes as well as freestanding units. Shelving with or without sliding doors is also available, along with various color options. Apart from Pliè, Util will also introduce a complete collection of Oyster bar seats and stools at Maison & Objet Paris. This year, the event takes place between January 19-23. Photographs© Util.
