Build your PLATSA storage as you want it – high or low, under a sloping ceiling or along an entire wall. It assembles in minutes with a simple “click”. Finish with doors and interior organisers as needed.
You can organise the inside with interiors from the HJÄLPA series – and for the exterior there are smart solutions in the LÄTTHET series.
You can easily create a storage solution that fits your needs and your space by combining frames in different heights and depths.
The frame is easy to install by just clicking it together, no tools are needed.
You can easily attach several PLATSA frames to each other using the included clips. They are easy to mount and remove without using tools, and you avoid visible screw holes on the outside.

Our living space is often limited, and it can be a challenge to find a place for everything. With PLATSA storage system, we wanted to create a simple, changeable storage solution that you can rebuild and add to, build vertically or horizontally, to the side or in between. On top of everything else, the price should be low but the quality should be high. The solution: the right quality in the right place.
"All you need is your hands," says product developer Freddy Kramer while clicking together one PLATSA frame after another. Yes, clicking. The secret is a type of plug called a wedge dowel.
Freddy goes on to explain why assembling or taking frames apart easily is an important detail.
"People's lives are changing more and more today ─ we move more often, live in smaller spaces and maybe share a home with others at times. That's why our needs don't look the same throughout life."
Take apart and rebuild
Freddy shows how the frames can be arranged vertically, horizontally or like steps, to then be completed with shelves, wire baskets, clothes rail, drawers and doors.
"Even the exterior can be used. You can place hooks there or a clothes rail which is fixed between two frames."
Love in a white box
For PLATSA to be truly long-lasting, quality was just as important as flexibility and ease of assembling. But improving quality without adding to the price is not easy.
"Right quality in the right place," Freddy says, and opens a cabinet door. "Here on the outside of the door, which you see and touch every day, we've used a matt foil with fine texture, while the inside, which is not as exposed, is coated with a simpler base foil."
The PLATSA project took a lot of time and commitment. But it also gave results.
"Those empty white boxes for the frames might not look like much at first glance, but they’re actually white boxes filled with love,” Freddy says, smiling.
What is constructed board?
We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
