The fun and versatile Piegato shelving series by Matthias Ries

Bookshelves are very functional and practical. They all have the property of being versatile and space-efficient and, more than that, they usually have flexible designs. However, there’s one part that makes us all we would another way of installing them. The part where we have to actually install the shelves is the most annoying of all. We have to follow precise instructions, get tools and hardware and we end up making a mess.

They are basically a flat piece that the consumer receives and that it ready for assembly. All he has to do is bend the metal template. One part folds down and it supported by metal triangles. These flip open from underneath and the rest of the metal sheet serves as wall mounts. All you need are four simple screws to attach the shelf to the wall and the process is complete.
