Jeff Miller for Baleri Italia

Milan update: cell structures and honeycombs were everywhere in Milan this year, like the Obo modular storage system by American designer Jeff Miller for Baleri Italia.


When stacked in zig-zagging towers, it is reminiscent of Haldane Martin's Slant shelving.


We'll leave it to Baleri Italia to explain:


Jeff Miller introduces OBO, a system of containers and spatial partitions based on the repetition and the combinations of a single plastic module. Multifunctional modular unit made with high-gloss plastic, whose repetition and combinations are the base of a system of containers and spatial partitions.


Obo integrates simple forms and assembly with extremely innovative compositions and applications. The result is an extremely versatile system which offers complete creative freedom. Each unit comes with two connection elements (CN) - also available separately – that make it possible to connect it to other units.


It is also available a wall or ceiling fastening kit with a 200cm steel wire (FK), suggested to improve the stability of compositions with more than three vertical modules. Obo can also be used as a sidetable and it is available in seven colours: white (W), tangerine (AR), burgundy (RB), lime (VL), periwinkle (GL), dove grey (GC) and black (N).
