New Kriptonite bookcases take centre stage at Milan Design Week

At Milano Design Week 2024, Kriptonite presented two new bookcases designed by two important names in Italian design: Giulio Iacchetti and Paolo Ulian.

Klark, designed by Giulio Iacchetti, was the star of a striking staging in the brand's showroom in Piazza 25 Aprile 7, while Eta Beta – designed by Paolo Ulian and Cinzio Ianiro – was presented at the fair, along with other new items and iconic pieces from Kriptonite.

The projects with Giulio Iacchetti and Paolo Ulian are Kriptonite's first collaborations with international-known designers. They harmonise perfectly with a brand that has always been associated with clean lines and a surprising visual lightness.

Designed by Taro Studio, both stagings presented new bookcases, and a new colour: Terra. Along with classic finishes like white, black and aluminium, and the neutral palette of Sand, Matte Anthracite, Textured Grey and Matte Green, the new Terra is a warm, raw-brick tone that evokes the natural shades of the red earth from which bauxite and aluminium are extracted.

The new Klark bookcase offers a new vision of the Kriptonite philosophy interpreted by Giulio Iacchetti: 'Kriptonite is a company that I've always been drawn to for the way they consistently think up home organization systems in metal that are compact and visually unfussy, but extremely efficient and functional,' says designer Giulio Iacchetti. 'I've always thought about proposing a modular bookcase design to them, and over time it's been perfected to become the product we see today.'

Conceived as a freestanding element, the bookcase can be set up in any space, growing in height and width to suit any need, and at the same time boasts incredibly compact packaging size. In iron and available in four colour variations – white, black, green and terracotta.

The new Eta Beta bookcase, designed for Kriptonite by Paolo Ulian and Cinzio Ianiro, is an exceptionally easy-to-assemble wall system. The design connects the horizontal shelves by means of pantograph-style lateral struts that work like a sort of accordion. The system is already assembled; the customer need only extend the lateral cross-braces and secure the bookcase to the wall.
