The Italic is an easy to fabricate, easy to assemble Knock down shelving system. It consists of only 2 parts, a 24 or 18mm plywood shelf and spacer, that can be assembled in many ways and configurations.
The shelf is very stable and strong as each part is locked by its own position and weight in a structure I developed and named “Controlled Collapse”. Basically, when the shelf is built high, it doesn’t loose its strength or stability.
Its name “Italic” is derived from the italic typefaces that slightly slant. It has endless arrangement possibilities and has a unique sculptural presence that comes from the direction of the spacers and the fact that the shelves are not aligned.
