In the ‘abc Collection’, Artek gathers highly varied accessories which complement the Finnish manufacturer’s legendary furniture. A few posters of design icons have also become part of that, and the 10-Unit System, designed only in 2009 by Shigeru Ban, has earned its place in the collection, as it allows for new combinations.
The 10-Unit System by Shigeru Ban consists of only one shape element: an L-like piece of composite material. Using multiple brackets arranged next to each other, the modular system can make chairs, benches and tables, again and again, and in only a few simple steps.
Thanks to this new method, the 10-Unit System has also earned a poster, as it’s already clear that the 2009 design will become a classic. The poster, designed by German designer duo Greige, visually emphasises the L-shape of the individual parts.
