MTO / modular furniture system

MTO
MTO

MTO is a modular furniture system characterized by its low cost and versatility of use. Those characteristics are achieved mainly by the use of tensioned polymeric stripes, a cheap and flexible material, as basic structural element. The tension is provided by hooks fixed on the wall and a pair of rings for each segment of the stripe, which allow an easy and intuitive adjustment of the number and distance between shelves while maintaining the whole structure stable. The stripes also serve as a decorative and colorful element, applicable to many different rooms of the house, such as bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living room or external spaces.
