The Slide Shelf System was designed with one guiding principle: adaptability. The domestic and work landscape is changing dramatically. There are shifts underway that have managed to eliminate many of the things we own and need at home and at the office. This means that the few things we do keep around are essential or have special value. With this in mind we set out to create a storage system for them.
The final design broke down the function into separate components: Brackets, bins and shelves. Slide’s brackets were developed with the objective of providing support for larger, heavier objects such as art books, without losing sight of material efficiency. The bins are the first accessories of what we believe could be a line of components that enhance the storage options of the system. The bins were selected as the first to be introduced in the line because they are the most context-agnostic components we developed. Their ability to be positioned along any point in the shelf provides customers a variety of functional and aesthetic configurations. This flexibility we believe is a critical capability given the range in the scale, weight and relationships between objects being displayed and stored.
