Looking for a flexible and light structured shelving system? Do not look further. I would like to share Meccanica, a great minimalist shelving system by Demode, engineered by Valcucine, with you.

The base unit frames of Meccanica are made of iron with a electrophoresis coating, connected together by using mechanical joints. The framework can be easily assembled by the end user and can be recomposed and customized extremely. All door types – wood, metal or covered with removable fabric – can be customized in various colors. On request one can also have the frames lacquered in a personal preferred color.

“We can not longer continue to produce without worrying about the goods that will accumulate in the environment tomorrow” says Valcucine so at the end of it’s life-cycle Meccanica is easy to disassembled and can be 100% recycled or reconditioned by 90%.

The use cases for Meccanica are endless, where would you use Meccanica for?

  1. The structure certainly looks minimal, though I think most people would struggle to keep it from looking visually cluttered.

  2. Chris VG.

    Minimal and cool but i fear it will be a daily death match against dust.

  3. It’s good looking, but I agree in real life it doesn’t work: almost impossible to keep it looking uncluttered and clean.

  4. ah, but open shelving is a great incentive to keep possessions to the strictly necessary – and encourages us to use beautiful and well crafted objects. this is a truly honest way to live. i really like this system.

  5. I’d agree with Jo. This piece could encourage some people to be better organised and more presentable in the kitchen, but for other people, this wouldn’t be likely. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful storage unit.

  6. Um. I think it looks great! but…i live in Christchurch, New Zealand and can tell you it would be a death trap in an Earthquake! Still, like I said looks great.

  7. well said jo! there are drawers and door panels that fit into the system in case some things need to be hidden or there are concerns about dust. this is a beautiful and well designed system… and I love the way it is presented — presentation is flirting with clutter in contrast to the spareness of the design while showing what the system can do…
