2020/21 News: Load-It, designed by Wolfgang Tolk + CRS Porro

Designed by Wolfgang Tolk in 1995 and characterised by protruding shelves that cut through the space, the Load-it bookshelf system is a classic Porro item that has managed to maintain its strong iconic appeal over the years, progressively acquiring new functions and design possibilities in combination with the Modern cabinet system. This year it is presented in the version with steel shelves and wall panels in natural canneté, featuring a succession of horizontal and vertical stripes to create a material picture on the wall that can reach down to the floor and be completed by the suspended top in black-stained hemlock, thus becoming a refined TV area. An ingenious project, now enhanced by lighting: the adjustable spotlight with an on-and-off touch system can be placed anywhere along the electrified profile under the shelf thanks to its magnetic connection, illuminating the objects displayed on the shelves in a technical and museum-like way.

Dimensions. Shelves: L. 99,5/199,5 x H. 3 x D. 29,5 cm. Panels: L. 60/120/140/200/240 x H. 19,5/29,5/39,5/59,5 cm.
