Downtown Shelving System

****SHIPS IN 10 - 12 WEEKS****

Design Oiva Toikka, 2011
Made in Italy by Magis

The Downtown Shelving System offers skyscraper style storage. Reminiscent of building blocks, this square shelving unit features five upwardly decreasing sized tiers, smooth slanted transitions from one tier to the next, a pointed top roof, and legs to raise it off the floor. Recessed squares indicate the windows along three sides of the unit, while the fourth side is wide open for easy access. Proudly display favored toys, or camouflage the contents by angling the shelf to show the "windowed" sides. The Downtown Shelving System is created from rotational molded polyethylene and is suitable for outdoor use.

Professor Oiva Toikka (born in 1931) is one of the greatest names in Finnish glass. His imaginative, rich, bold glass art deviates from the streamlined aesthetic of Nordic design. Oiva Toikka is renowned worldwide for his unique and massive contribution to Finnish art glass over the past half century (the Birds Collection for Iittala is his best-known work. The pieces are renewed annually, and are highly sought after as gifts and collector’s pieces). He has enjoyed an international career and received numerous awards, among them the Lunning Prize, Pro Finlandia Medal, World Glass Now 85 Award, Kaj Franck Design Prize and the Prince Eugen Medal.
