Componibili Square Storage Module
designed by Anna Castelli Ferrieri
At A Glance:
The Componibili square storage modules have been designed to meet various functional needs and slot into any home setting - in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, or living room. The design feature that brings the Componibili modular system to life is the simple and robust vertical overlapping of the single pieces, which - by way of a simple joint - form practical movable containers. Offered in variably-sized round shapes, the Componibili modules can stand on small casters.
What's To Like:
- Those of you with limited bathroom storage will feel this one: Componibili is a great place to keep all your essentials away from prying eyes.
- Don't want to keep your stuff in that spot anymore? Move it! Optional casters make the trip easy.
- Plastic doesn't chip, scratch, or wear away like paint does.
What's Not to Like:
You can likely get a less expensive storage system if you really want to. But will it look as good?
The Bottom Line:
Flexible, functional and practical, Componibili modules have been in production for more than thirty years and have received much recognition for their preeminent and innovative design. They are displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. Useful versatility, popular acceptance, critical acclaim - and that's the bottom line.

Anna Castelli-Ferrieri was born in 1920 in Milan, where she studied architecture, graduating in 1943. Marrying into the Castelli family (owners of Kartell) in the same year, she subsequently began a long career designing for Kartell. Her innovative designs used plastics as well as polyurethane, polystyrene and polypropylene. She was a pioneering architect associated with the postwar period of Italian modern design, known for its embrace of technological innovation and audacious style. Several of her own designs, which include plastic shelving, storage systems, modular furniture, kitchen and tableware and stacking storage units were awarded the Compasso d'oro.
Creativity and technology, glamour and functionality, quality and innovation: a combination of extraordinary factors together with a strategic vision of distribution has contributed to the lasting success of Kartell. By cultural and entrepreneurial choice, since its origins in 1949 the Italian manufacturer has chosen to characterize itself as the market leader in the production of designers articles which use technology and plastic materials. This choice requires a great understanding of materials and transformation technology. A leader in furniture design, Kartell addresses an international audience with a collection unique in originality, variety, size, and range.
