Further info from manufacturer on HIPÓSTILA
Hypóstila is a shelving that offers infinite possibilities. It is constructed using extruded aluminium sections and the various elements are joined together using pieces that work on the principle of expansion. There are no holes, so the shelves can be put in any position.Bd has always had a special interest in shelving –this auxiliary furnishing that keeps places tidy– and in aluminium too. The Hypóstila shelving was designed in 1979 by Lluís Clotet and Óscar Tusquets, with advice from the engineer Jesús Jiménez, in such a way that it can take heavy loads using minimal sections and achieve an infinity of sizes and arrangements. In 1995, a new shelving model was manufactured, this time based on tubes along the lines of an idea of Enric Miralles. Hypóstila is composed by single upright posts to be hold to wall in anodised matt aluminium, 2, 3 or 4m height. Silver matt extruded and anodised aluminium shelves. Flat shelf HYP I, 15,5cm or 25cm depths, with optionals side covers of grey plastic and tubular shelf HYP II of 15,5cm depth. The shelves can be cut made-to-measure and their corners can be rounded. Toolings for fixing the profiles to the wall in white zinc coated iron. Foot in mat anodized cast aluminium. The Hypóstila II shelves can be combined with Hypóstila I.
