Strong shelfVerified ReviewerHad to buy another shelf for my daughter wardrobe. The shelf is strong and heavy and fit perfectly. The packaging was good and fast delivered.5
Doesn’t fit StuvaVerified ReviewerUsed in store screens to identify shelf to fit my Stuva unit, and this was the number 1 result. After getting home, this isn’t deep enough so the fittings in completely the wrong place. Disappointed.1
Easy to fit - light but sturdyVerified ReviewerThis shelf is obviously made from light materials (unlike pax that are heavy chipboard) but that is an advantage for where I am using them as they were easy to fit, carry and easily strong enough to hold the boxes I need. Easy to fit. Nice depth (seem slightly thicker than pax komplement shelves). The white ‘laminate’ has no joints so looks good.5

Good fittings for the Platsa unitsVerified ReviewerUsing the custom made plugs which fit in the storage frame, these are strong shelves for storing paper, files etc. The cut-out design of the plugs makes a firm fit for the shelves so they do not move when fitted properly into the frame.4
The storage that changes with you
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.
