The Metis Shelving System is a shelving evolution that combines the beauty of natural wood and the strenght of steel. A designer statement with functional attributes.

Constructed by harmoniously combining wood and an extraordinary ellipse steel tube, the Metis Shelving System is offered with a single faced end and intermediate frame to accommodate perimeter walls or it can be converted to double faced configuration simply by placing the frames back to back. Undoubtedly, this makes Metis one of the most flexible systems available on the market.

The construction of the Metis Shelving System is based on a starter/add-on concept. It offers several standard components designed primarily to serve the functional and aesthetic requirements of all kinds of libraries.
