Cubitec Modular Shelves - 1 Kit
designed by Doron Lachisch

Cubitec is a scalable storage and organization solution that takes the form of square shelving. Cubes, if you will. And why wouldn't you? With these ingenious units you can create shelves as long, tall, or tiny as you want. No matter what kind of space you need to transform with attractive, multipurpose shelving and storage, you can adapt Cubitec units to get the job done.

What's to Like:

The completely customizable nature of the product is the most appealing thing about it. They can scale up or down, fit any space. And that's a rare quality in a piece of furniture. Also rare? A piece of furniture that can be turned into an elaborate playhouse for your cats.

What's Not to Like:

The plastic look of the shelves can be great for some rooms, not so great for others. If you're going for gravitas in your shelving solutions, these aren't exactly it.

Bottom Line:

These are great solutions for your storage and organization problems. They can scale and fit in any room, any place. Just make sure the mesh with your decor.

Each modular plastic shelf can be built vertically or horizontally, easily adapting to the needs of your space. Lightweight injection-molded polypropylene composition provides exceptional durability. Cubitec shelving is perfect for use as a bookshelf, home office shelf, or storage unit with a contemporary look and feel. With three unique colors to choose from, Cubitec shelving is an eye-catching, highly functional unit that will stand out in any setting.

Each plastic shelf is 100% recyclable. Available in translucent white. Each original Cubitec shelf space supports up to 55 lbs

Mounting: For additional support, Cubitec can also be mounted to a wall (mounting hardware included).

Dimensions: 54.5" h x 35.5" w x 10" d
Interior dimensions (each cube): 15.5" h x 15.5" w x 10" d

*Please note that Cubitec is not compatible with Cubits shelving units.

    I bought four kits and assembled them into a huge system on one wall for my sewing room. The instructions say to wait to put the pins in (last), and I did, but some pins (particularly in the middle of the whole thing) were hard to put in. I'm sure this was mostly because I had such a huge set. Next time all the pins will not going in last.

    Other than that, they are lovely. Took the better part of a day to assemble them (four sets, remember), which I mostly did alone. The completed shelf is about 10 feet long and about 6 feet tall.

    I've had the cubitec in a hallway that doesn't get any direct sunlight for 5+ years and it has yellowed over time. Next to a white wall its very noticeable. A friend gave me some extra pieces and they were even more yellowed, which leads me to believe if you have them in a sunny room you should expect discoloration in a year or two.

    In their new home they will be painted, they are still very functional and have held up well.

    We've used these shelves for over 10 years. We now have 8 sets. They have grown with us; both as we have moved and re-purposed them, and also as our kids have grown and room layouts changed. They're modern yet fit in any room. We now have an 8 section tall, 7 section wide library shelving system!

      Product design is brilliant. no hardware necessary other than what comes in the box, and very simple to put together. Feels like building legos.

      Very strong product. Visually stunning.

      The only negative I have is that I built the shelves so tall that I needed stronger anchors to fasten them to the wall.

      Comments about DLP Cubitec - 1 Kit:

      We use these in our production office where we have tons of small drives, etc to store that are in use often. We have one large unit on the floor and then we put one smaller unit on top of a bank of file cabinets, makes a nice display area for awards, pretty items, etc.

      They are challenging to assemble, lots of parts, but they are very sturdy and attractive.

      Also, we has 2 of the shelves that were damaged in the shipping, and the service to replace them was awesome. We did a chat and had the product in the next business day!!! No hassle, just sent them a picture of the damaged shelf. Very nice to find that kind of service with an online retail shop.

        This is an excellent product to use when space is limited. Sturdy and very functional, this shelf system is a great use of plastic as an alternative to more traditional materials such as wood and metal. And while size, adaptability and use of material are well thought out the instruction sheet is perhaps not as clear and easy to follow as it could have been (although once you get into the swing of things the assembly definitely quickens).

                              We were looking at a similar product at [...], but it was[...] more expensive[...]This version of the cubitec is slightly different, but you can't tell unless they're side-by-side. The shelves fill a space nicely, but are not too imposing. Exactly what we wanted. The cubbies are a little large for storing books, but we made it work.

                              I bought four kits and assembled them into a huge system on one wall for my sewing room. The instructions say to wait to put the pins in (last), and I did, but some pins (particularly in the middle of the whole thing) were hard to put in. I'm sure this was mostly because I had such a huge set. Next time all the pins will not going in last.

                              Other than that, they are lovely. Took the better part of a day to assemble them (four sets, remember), which I mostly did alone. The completed shelf is about 10 feet long and about 6 feet tall.

                              The delivery was very prompts. The billing was delayed but the customer service folks figured out the problem when I called and were very helpful and called me back to keep me updated.

                                I love books and I love my Cubitec shelves. I assembled an entire wall of shelving in about 6 hours once I figured out the instructions. With the left-over pieces I made two end tables and a shelf for a flat screen TV and DVDS. These shelves are work horses and very safe and stable without attaching to the wall dispite their 6 cube height. I really like when the sunlight glows through them. Very cool.
