The Urban shelving unit was born from a simple concept: a single module capable of functioning as a bookshelf, with the added possibility of adding extra modules to create unique compositions. A system without hooks or joints allows the user to create walls, screens, horizontal and vertical elements; angles, benches, entertainment systems – anything at all. The niches carved out of the piece underline the monolithic and solid nature of the Urban shelving unit.
