Flat Shelving unit 180

“I prefer not to talk about style. I would say that in my work it is honesty that stands out, the balance between function and the more formal aspect. I give few headaches to my clients and I am not comfortable with extravagance. Of the design process, the part that I find most suggestive, the essential one for me, is finding complicity with my clients.”
Mario Ruiz

 

The FLAT shelving unit 180 brings classic indoor shelving to the outdoors with contemporary materials and high outdoor durability. It is an outdoor shelving unit made of solid plates and hand-welded aluminium profiles, available in different powder-coated colours and 100% recyclable white polyethylene slats or the ultra-compact Dekton® by Cosentino surface, your choice.

 

Modular and versatile. This designer shelving unit allows you to create larger compositions by joining several of them together depending on the needs and the dimensions of your space.

 

The FLAT shelving unit 180 is an original design by Mario Ruiz for GANDIABLASCO.
