USE IT OUTSIDE
BUILD has insulating properties. It will cool your drinks and your hot snack warm.
BUILD is waterproof, resistant to chemicals and esay to clean.
You can use BUILD outdoors but it is not recommended for continuous exposure to UV light, due to the nature of the polymer it is made from. After continuous exposure of months to direct sunlight outside there may be a change in the apparent colour of the furniture. We suggest that it is removed from direct sunlight (outdoors) when not in use.
When you have to work from home, you can use BUILD to bring documents from or to the office.
A BUILD unit weighs only 1.5 lbs (750 g). That's like carrying a couple of Coca Cola cans.
NEED SOME EXTRA SEATING?
As shelving BUILD is a place for your everyday objects. Turn the units around and they will become a set of stools - perfect for when guests arrive at home and you need some extra seating.
FROM SHELVING TO PARITITON
BUILD can also be used to create free-standing partitions and room dividers for different interior settings.
12 BUILD units, from shelving to partition
47 BUILD units, used to create a partitioning wall
IDEAL FOR POP-UP STORES AND OFFICES
BUILD is also suited to the contract market, where its design will lend itself to pop-up stores, rented offices and frequent workplace re-designs (incl. co-working spaces) and events.

EASY TO INSTALL
It can't be easier. BUILD is supplied with special clips. Use them to hold the shelves in place or mount them on the wall (in this case you will need to drill a hole and use a screwdriver to fix the clips). No sweating, no instructions and no tools - we promise!
No tools nedded - goodby allen key.
EASY TO CLEAN
BUILD is easy to maintain. It is waterproof and resistant against chemicals and bacteria. And if you happen to spill some wine over it - no worries - just wipe it with a damp cloth.
MINIMUM WEIGHT – MAXIMUM STRENGTH
You can hardly damage BUILD. As it is made from ARPRO EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) , a shock absorbing material, you don't need to worry about injuries from bumping into it or damages from dropping it on the floor. Next, when you move it about BUILD will not scratch even the finest hardwood floors.
BUILD is incredibly light - this makes it easy for you to lift and move it around anytime on your own, no matter what age you are.
BUILD is completely toxin-free and shock absorbing . No one will get hurt or injured.
BUILD is so light, it even floats on water!

BUILD comes with a textured, silky surface.
