This original, modern and modular shelf unit is made entirely of AGC glass and manufactured by FIAM, the well-known Italian glass-furniture producer. INORI is a collaborative effort between FIAM and noted designers Setsu and Shinobu Ito.
Inspired by prayer
INORI is Japanese for ‘pray’, a concept which Setsu and Shinobu Ito have incorporated into the shelf unit’s design. Its vertical partitions are reminiscent of hands joined in prayer, creating a ‘sacred haven’ for your belongings.
Featuring AGC Planibel Dark Grey
FIAM selected AGC Glass Europe’s Planibel Dark Grey to produce INORI. Planibel Dark Grey is a unique float glass chosen not only for its style, trendy colour and thickness (up to 10 mm), but also because it can be easily transformed and processed (Planibel glass can be thermally moulded). The glass is extremely versatile and can be shaped to suit any conceivable use, whether indoors (as partitions, doors, furniture, etc.) or outdoors (as cladding on certain types of facade, especially in hot countries).
