A functional flatpack shelving system set to unfold at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair, this recyclable design by the Parisian duo of NOCC is a practical DIY storage unit that can be built in a variety of ways, adapting to individual space and functional needs. Dubbed ‘Element’ the entire piece actually consists of a simple 1mm sheet of aluminum that has been laser-cut to be folded and assembled with ease to fit perfectly with your existing decor.

Designed for varying tastes, each Element is also available in a colored finish or basic anodized metallic coating. The flatpack design also lends itself to space saving, minimization of materials in both production and packing, as well as reduction in the amount of CO2 emitted during the transportation of the goods.

Element will be taking part at an exhibition called Nouvelle Vague, the New French Domestic Landscape, held at the Centre Culturel Français during the Milan Furniture Fair. Curated by Cédric Morisset, the event will present the works of up-and-coming French designers, including the talented A+A Cooren, Ionna Vautrin, Pierre Favresse, Pool, and off course, the works of Nocc.
