Load-it, designed by Wolfgang Tolk

AN EVOLVING CLASSIC

Designed by
Wolfgang Tolk

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.

Load-it is a versatile book shelving system that can fulfill different daily functions. It is made up of thin L shaped shelves in highly resistant, wax-finished steel, as well as painted in white or in the special burnished brass, grigio porfido or rosso antico finishes. The shelves come in two widths: 1000 and 2000 mm, that can be cut to size. The product is completed with wall panels that are available in many customizable sizes and in a variety of finishes, ranging from matt and glossy lacquer to the wood types of Porro’s Collection, mirror, wax-finished steel, burnished brass, grigio porfido and rosso antico finishes as well as fabric – either one of the selected collection or a special customer’s fabric and to the canneté, natural or black stained. The system also features steel sheet bookends in the same finishes as the shelf.

Another peculiarity of Load-it is the possibility to mix it with the Modern system so as to further increase the range of compositions and uses of this very plain bookcase.
