Design by Carme Pinós, 2010.
Made in Spain by Santa & Cole.
Noa Menor is a simple modular shelving system for the wall. Made of folded steel, the modules are joined together by intermediate connectors which also serve as finials at the ends. The shelves, with a small cross-section, notably lighten the visual weight of books, creating the illusion that they are floating.
Sold in sets of two, the grey hanging metal shelves can be installed individually or side-by-side. Combine sets to create a wall of shelving. Each shelf has an opening to allow for cord passage.
