Nitō

From a typical connecting element for aluminum in 1993 the construction of a piece of furniture arose.
In 2018, it was revised, simplified and supplemented.
Nitō is simple, light, stands freely in the room and comes home assembled. Like a bridge, it is firmly riveted and is functionally supplemented by various accessories.

Design: Thomas Merkel, 1993/2018

Nitō

In the rhythm of the rivet
Nitō is easy to understand. Its construction is simple, but very clever. Its few parts make a solid and stable whole. Many bridges were constructed from a stable material, riveted parts, firmly joined together. They follow the function and impress with their constructive beauty.

The form of Nitō follows the construction. The pure connector of the material also has a further function: additional elements such as intermediate floors, sloping shelves, stop strips, rear walls, sliding doors, shelf connectors or wall mounts can be mounted there. And with additional drawers it becomes a piece of furniture.

Nitō is made of aluminum and is therefore still very light as a very large shelf. This has many advantages, not only during transport. Its surface is robust because it is powder coated. Nitō is available in zinc yellow RAL 1018, oxide red RAL 3009, pastel blue RAL 5024, reseda green RAL 6011, moss gray RAL 7003, light gray RAL 7035, traffic white RAL 9016 and in the color DB-703.
