Wall system Graffity – Bieffeplast Padova – R. Kinsman
Article number 7215
Graffity is a shelving system designed by Rodney Kinsman (UK) for Bieffeplast Padova (Italy). A classic 80s design using postmodern principles. Its versatility and straightforward design define this modular shelving system. It is merely leaning against the wall, making it simple to attach to any available wall. The system consists of black painted sheet steel columns and shelves. In contrast to the supports, which are sloped, the floors continue to be horizontal. A notable feature of the grooved rubber caps is their ability to prevent slipping on both the wall and the floor. The two open black metal racks (on the right side of this system) are playful as well and come with 5 open Perplex boxes. The Graffity bookcase is a playful, postmodern icon designed by the famous Rodney Kinsman.
