Shelving does not always have to consist of a series of right angles forming a rectilinear piece of furniture. Shelving can be fun; shelving can be exciting! Who doesn’t love (and need) extra storage? Marco Fumagalli has designed a wonderful alternative to traditional shelving. Extreme from Martex is a whimsical modular shelving system for the office full of organic cutouts to store any collection of items.

Whimsical Modular Shelving for the Office
The Extreme shelving unit is created using a combination of multiple modular pieces. Organic-shaped tubes are sandwiched between two perforated surfaces. These tubes are constructed using a polypropylene foam material. They provide an excellent lightweight, compact surface, and the tubes are recyclable.
Fumagalli has created a versatile storage unit by allowing the Extreme shelving system to assume either a vertical or horizontal position. Other modules can be added to the base extending upwards or to either side. Additionally, the Extreme system gains even more versatility by providing a variety of colors allowing it to find a home in any office color scheme.
