A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
The bookcase has thick shelves teamed with simple, innovative uprights to create a set of open shelves. The vertical, padded textile inserts are eye-catching and decorative and help to lower noise levels. The uprights move on hidden rails, while a choice of three lengths of shelves and joining brackets enable a variety of linear arrangements, e.g. L-, H-, T-, U- or S-shaped. Furthermore, the 40cm modular units can be placed one on top of the other to the desired height. Now, thanks to Tred Shelf, a set of shelves is no longer just somewhere to put books and decorative objects but is an appealing piece of furniture which can also be used for optimising our space, dividing or isolating areas of the house, and will look good in any style of living room or other setting.
