A clas­sic cube is re-cut and re-re­leased at Cult

A re-re­lease of a clas­sic by Verner Pan­ton gives his clever cubes greater ver­sa­til­ity. In 1971, Dan­ish de­signer Verner Pan­ton cre­ated a func­tional – and hum­ble – shelv­ing sys­tem made from steel wire. The ‘Pan­ton Wire’ was ver­sa­tile and stylish: you could start small and add to it over time, re-pur­pos­ing the wire cubes in dif­fer­ent ways as your needs changed. It be­came an in­stant clas­sic: re­fined, yet in­dus­trial, it has been adapted to all sorts of uses, from side ta­bles to shelv­ing. Now, Dan­ish stor­age com­pany Mon­tana has taken over pro­duc­tion and re­leased new up­dates to Pan­ton’s de­sign – dif­fer­ent top pan­els, more cube depth, as well as new shades and ma­te­ri­als for in­creased flex­i­bil­ity, in­clud­ing lim­ited-edi­tion gold. One of the world’s most en­dur­ing de­signs is now available at Cult De­sign. Pan­ton, no doubt, would be de­lighted.

Top The ‘Pan­ton Wire’ sys­tem was de­signed to be used in­di­vid­u­ally and in com­bi­na­tion.

Above The new re­lease in­cludes a lim­ited-edi­tion gold cube.
