UTIL DEBUTS NOVELTIES AT SUPERSALONE
2021Young Portuguese design brand UTIL showcases at „The Makers Show” at supersalone, debuting three compelling novelties. Designed with the practicalities of everyday life in mind, the new modular and versatile pieces expand UTIL’s collection of minimalist and functional storage furniture and will have their premier in Milan.
The new releases include the super versatile, modular and stackable storage box KGT by Studio CP-RV, the striking and minimalist wall shelf Plié Wall Shelf by Cesare Bizzotto and Tobias Nitsche from FROM INDUSTRIAL DESIGN, as well as a new finish to the side table Basso Bar Cart by de- signer and UTIL co-founder Manuel Amaral Netto.
PLIÉ WALL SHELF
The elegant wall shelf Plié perfectly complements the modular shelving system Plié. Being dis- tinguished by its sleek design, Plié uses the least amount of material possible folded to create a light weight yet very robust structure. Its simple and architectural design language as well as its timelessness perfectly reflect the character of the design brand UTIL. It adapts to ever-changing interiors, from the contemporary workspace and to private living environments, giving books and small items a subtle and timeless frame.
KGT STORAGE BOX
KGT by Studio CP-RV is a highly versatile storage system made from aluminium. Inspired by tradi- tional crates that are typical for transporting fruits and vegetables, KGT is a simple container box that is portable by hand as well as stackable and can be hung on the wall as a shelf. Its simple lines and reduced look fit seamlessly in any interior, while the aluminium makes it reusable, durable as well as recyclable.
BASSO BAR CART
Inspired by the legendary Bar Basso and a good strong Negroni, the sculptural Basso Bar Cart by Manuel Amaral Netto was originally developed as a bar cart. However, its simple design language and reduction to the essential, makes it suitable for a variety of applications. The durable cart is easy to move on four swivel casters. Thanks to a waterproof cork mat, you can put things on the up- per tray without damaging the surface. The lower tray is an open container that stores everything from bottles to magazines.
