Entry Description

MORE LIGHT modular interior design system – design Giorgio Caporaso
More Light has a green soul. Easier to assemble and disassemble, it is ideal to satisfy all of our daily needs, thanks to the flexibility of its square modules and its joint system. In fact, you can assemble bookcases of different sizes and depths, shelving, panel walls, display stands, wall units, as well as seats or tables. Thanks to the wide range of finishes, colours, textures and graphic designs available, its personality can be further enhanced by a more customized and personal design. More Light is designed to dynamically interpret not only domestic but also work environments and public spaces such as offices, public buildings, showrooms and hotels as well as being a great addition to shops or helping to set a scene in shop windows. As the entire Ecodesign Collection by Giorgio Caporaso, it is the result of a process of experimental design that relies entirely on the convertibility of the products. Designed to have many functions and adapt to all needs, the objects follow a concept of total customization and are the expression of an eco- friendly design. Aesthetic refinement and environmental compatibility find a meeting point thanks to a careful functional study, combined with research of materials and eco-friendly construction methods. Each system has its spare parts and at the end of its life all its components can be easily separated to go to different disposal or recycling. Nothing gets old or loses its meaning, everything has a new meaning.
