This product listing is for individual Gridlock system components. Complete configurations are available to purchase here.
Designed by Chris Martin, Massproductions' Gridlock is a high-quality utilitarian shelving system made from solid FSC-certified ash wood. Its shelves can be customised according to your needs using a simple yet clever fixture. A key feature of the design is that the shelves can be placed in strict grids, promoting a sense of order in your home or office. The shelves and side panels lock in place simply, leading to the name 'Gridlock' for the shelf.
Gridlock's shelves wrap-around the vertical elements, creating a harmonious shelving wall with continuous horizontal lines. The system includes clever solutions with fittings specifically designed to simplify assembly and enhance functionality: Once the shelf is slid onto the back fixings it should settle onto the front bolts with a satisfying 'clunk-click' action. This easy and smartly designed assembly enhances both the practicality and durability of the product. Thanks to its minimal and timeless design, the system integrates seamlessly into any space, serving as an architectural element rather than just a piece of furniture.
The system offers various components: Side Panels with heights of 74, 146, or 182 cm, Linking Panels (double-sided panels) with heights of 74, 146 or 182 cm, Shelves with depths of 24 cm or 30 cm, and a Desk Section. Thanks to this variety, the system is fully customisable and serves as an ideal, long-lasting, flexible storage solution.
Chris Martin on the design - "It may look simple, but it took a few years to complete Gridlock: We had to ensure that all connections and details were functional, find the right production method, and verify that the system could be easily assembled by customers. Additionally, we wanted it to accommodate features that will be added in the future."
