Kriptonite presents the new Klark bookcase designed by Giulio Iacchetti

At Milano Design Week 2024, Kriptonite introduced the new Klark bookcase, designed by Giulio Iacchetti. This project marked Kriptonite's first collaboration with an internationally renowned designer, bringing new proposals that harmonized perfectly with a brand known for its clean lines and surprising visual lightness.

The new Klark bookcase offers a fresh vision of the Kriptonite philosophy as 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 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. Klark is the onomatopoeic sound of sheet metal gently bending along perforated lines to be transformed into the bookcase modules, but it's also the slightly-modified name of Superman's alter ego (Clark Kent)… so it's an homage to Kriptonite, a name that alludes to the only element that can beat the strongest man on the planet!'

Klark is a modular system with clean, minimalist lines, based on a composition of three simple elements: the base, bendable metal sheets, and magnetic corner clamps. The interlocking system designed by Iacchetti can be assembled without wall mounts; the metal sheets are manually folded to form 'C' shapes, and the corners are clamped together from the inside by magnets. The result is an extremely versatile, simple design that adapts to all sorts of spaces, and can be modified over time. Conceived as a freestanding element, the bookcase can be set up in any space, growing in height and width to suit any need, while also boasting incredibly compact packaging size. Made of iron and available in four color variations – white, black, green, and terracotta – Klark offers infinite modular possibilities: in larger dimensions, it can be used as a divider between two spaces; in smaller ones, it can serve as a low bookcase in a living space.
