Evaluation

First of all, we were all taken aback by the absolutely beautiful appearance of this product. The heavy-duty construction allows each 10-mm thin shelf panel to withstand weight of up to 80 kg. The shelf pegs that hold the panels are kept simple and clean. The technology of the manufacturer that has long been dealing with aluminum constructional materials is packed into the entire structure, and the minimalistic design accentuates the striking beauty. We look forward to seeing future development such as with the lighting system.
