Product description

Plinto bookcases overturn the conviction that a thin shelf can support only a minimum load even if it is supported just by two sides which are hung to the wall. Without sacrificing purity in design, which is aimed at making it fluent to the eye, the particular stratified wood or the glass that makes up the first have a both certified and unsuspected strength. On the contrary, the aluminium of the seconds is as light as effective.

Concept

Plinto has been revised in a new form marked out by containers and open spaces, integrated into one element. Other components, featured by open spaces hidden by the cabinet structure, frame in the composition a vertical architectural stroke, visually very impressive.
Its modular structure has been improved and made more flexible by adding a 16 cm module (1.6), allowing for both more articulated solutions and the total integration with the APP (Architectural Partition Project) wardrobe system, which can be used to divide living spaces architecturally.
