Bookshelves made of steel and iron, perfect for a modern and industrial space, is one thing; metal bookshelves with intricate shapes, curvy angles and eye-catching designs is another, as they completely change and revitalise the space they’re put into.
That’s exactly the idea behind Brescian Siderio, a family-run company focused on industrial-chic furniture. From bookcases and magazine racks to coffee tables and wine racks, Siderio utilise state-of-the-art technology (as well as a firm dose of creativity) to make the metal furnishings that they love – which, as it turns out, is also adored by countless homeowners.
Inspired by NY-style lofts and combined with that elegant ‘made in Italy’ touch, the company continues to design and present unique accessories and furniture pieces that can be ideal for the modern-day space – modern, contemporary, industrial, or otherwise.
Let’s have a look at some high-class 3D renderings that speak of their tailor-made products.
A bookcase with a high-end design that’s also high in size – this thin, elongated structure reaching for the sky was designed with space-saving in mind. Made of steel and flaunting a painted finish, it’s ideal to flaunt books and accessories in the living room, and display décor and function as an open closet in the bedroom.
Designed in collaboration with the architectural and interior design firm Sagitair, this piece of furniture has an incredibly thin structure – its metal rods measures 15 x 15mm and has been perfectly laser-cut and welded by skilled craftsmen.
The result is a sturdy structure with a look that’s simultaneously peculiar and light. As they say, less is more!
Next, we move onto a completely different design – this interesting and unique structure that’s simultaneously an open and closed bookcase, depending on your point of view.
Its original shape, metal surfaces and clever interplay of open and filled cubes makes this structure perfect for environments with a modern and/or industrial edge.
In addition, it can also serve as the ideal room divider in an open-space loft, or just add to the overall décor scheme of any room.
Aiding in its eye-catching design is a new finish that also represents the metropolitan taste of the company in charge of these beauties. In fact, this specific design stands out due to its unique colour: ‘iron calamine’, which helps to give the design its intense look consisting of blue and grey hues.
Seven simple shelves forming a modern bookcase, flaunting equal amounts of minimal and industrial charm – that about sums up our next discovery.
Each shelf is one metre long and can be adjusted and slid to present unique-looking bookcases according to your heart’s desires – see how these two examples are not identical in appearance? And thanks to their minimalist style, they are ideal for any environment: residential, commercial, or otherwise.
Inspired by one of the Greek legends’ great muses, Talia, this elegant little design is perfect for those who want to save on space. Thin in appearance and minimalist in design, this barely-there piece can complement any room while it’s being used to stack books of all sizes – or décor pieces, whichever you deem more fitting.
But what makes this piece even more amazing is the fact that’s also the ideal bookcase for music lovers. Hence its name: Talia Sound. Because in addition to a slender design made of clean lines and defined geometries, this piece also allows one to insert an iPhone, iPod, USB drive, SD card, or any MP3 device into the dock. The result? Music flowing from the speaker and subwoofer!
