X-System by Alexander Lotersztain

Brisbane designer Alexander Lotersztain has created X-System, a shelving system for Australian brand Planex.


The modular system features X-shaped pillars that slot into rails on the shelves, and only requires an Allen key for assembly.

X = the universal answer to shelving

X-System, the latest release from Australian design-manufacturer Planex in collaboration with Brisbane-based designer Alexander Lotersztain, is a unique, modular shelving system that combines strength, simplicity, minimalism and versatility.


Choice is a key feature of the unique X-System design. Users can choose installation options and construction combinations that range from a simple credenza to an extensive wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling shelving system that utilises spans of up to 3.5 metres, and which works in all interior environments.


Shelves are available in an assortment of lengths and in 120 stylish colours. They can be used to 'create' a monochromatic installation that blends in with its environment, in a contrasting colour to make a statement, or combine several colours for a more animated or casual effect.


Lotersztain's philosophy of design simplicity has once again provided a bold outcome. Inspired by architectural structures, the simple 'x' pillar slots into the shelf 'rails' to form a strong, interlocking, stackable system requiring only an Allen-key to assemble.


Recognised as one of Australia's hottest new designers, Lotersztain has recently featured in a number of national and international journals and publications including Who's hot in an international design and '& Fork' (Phaidon). Lotersztain was recently invited to work on Limes, Australia’s latest pure-design hotel, contributing interior designs for the bathroom, kitchen furniture and fittings, the corporate identity, and a large proportion of the hotel’s furniture.


X-System is Australian-made and manufactured by Planex Melbourne. It is 100 per cent recyclable, designed for fast and complete disassembly, and flat-packed for convenient national and international transportation.


X-System is available nationally and exclusive to interior designers and architects through Planex.
