Compile Shelving System


Designed by internationally acclaimed designer Cecilie Manz for Scandinavian design company Muuto, Compile is a contemporary variation of the classic shelving system. The functional and flexible concept, combined with a sophisticated appearance, makes the shelves easy to integrate into a multitude of interior spaces, whether there is the need for an individual module or an entire wall of shelves.

Compile consists of a shelf and four tubes in three heights, which can be combined to suit the purpose. The tubes are joined at the bottom, in a double foot when several modules are combined, creating a stable unit. The tubes and shelves, with their rounded edges, contribute to the light design idiom and creates an airy, open expression together with its stark construct. Cecilie Manz explains:

Storage is important because it is so universal: everybody needs good solutions. The inspiration for the assignment was indeed the everyday storage situation.
I appreciate the simplicity in the design approach and the way it’s constructed; one can assemble practical formations that fit individual needs. Compile reflects and accommodates to the life it is a part of.
