BENT is a metal shelving unit. Its concept is beautifully simple; a rectangular metal sheet is folded to a 90 degree angle to create the shelf support, which is then screwed to the wall. This metal sheet is riddled with holes of varying sizes, which add a sense of lightness and texture, as well as creating interesting and enticing displays of light and shadow. BENT may be used as a solo piece to house objects and books; equally, it may be fitted in a group to create a vast and visually arresting wall mounted shelving display. BENT allows for even greater flexibility due to its potential to be fixed to the wall in two different configurations.
Finish: Powder Coated.
Monolitico is the furniture collection by the Italian architect Matteo Gerbi. Its uniqueness, its defining feature, is the simplicity of its design, which comprises a single piece of metal sheet bent or folded to create a practical object; it’s from this concept that the collection takes its name, Monolitico (Monolithic in English). The designer was inspired by a desire to circumvent the waste of material by completely removing any superfluities, as well as to demonstrate that with a simple concept and traditional materials we can still achieve uniqueness and stylishness.
The Monolitico collection currently comprises furnishings such as shelves and coat racks craft from a steel sheet.
The minimalism of the design will be irresistible to clients who seek and appreciate simplicity and elegance in their living and work spaces. Through the mere action of folding a rectangular sheet, a sturdy shelf or stylish and unique coat rack can be created, both of which are ideal for homes and offices, while the no-frills, understated design allows for inclusion of the products in virtually any décor or environment, whether contemporary, classic or rustic.
Designer Matteo Gerbi is passionate about supporting and promoting local manufactures and about minimizing excessive and unnecessary importation; for this reason, the Monolitico collection has been not only designed, but manufactured entirely in the UK.
