Wow factor. We were getting ready to do our Top 10 adjustable shelving list and thinking that Vitsoe would be at the top, when we got a call from a friend who just joined Atlas Industries. He directed us to pics of their AS4 shelving system and we were floored. How come we haven't seen this before?
Combining the strength and thin lines of steel with the warmth and texture of wood, the AS4 shelving is the perfect solution to a modern apartment without going all hi-tech and industrial. Like the Vitsoe, it is totally adjustable and expandable from bookshelves to workspace to storage.
Featured in Dwell Magazine this month (we missed it), Karen Rinaldi agrees:
These are perfect bookshelves. They're beautiful. They have that old library feel but look modern. They don't scream "look at me". They look like they're there to hold the books. These are the ones I'd be buying. I love that you can integrate them with a desk and drawers-it's an ingenious system.
Prices? Not cheap. The office wall above is $4465 and the bookcase is $3360. This is what you call "aspirational."
FYI: they also make a number of other beautiful things pictured below.
