Stille is a contemporary collection of furniture designed by Standard Issue in Brooklyn, New York and manufactured in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Providing maximum functionality with a minimum of materials, Stille was created using the Abstracta System, a modular set of components developed in the 1960s by the Danish industrialist Poul Cadovius.
Units are comprised of 1/2-inch diameter steel tubes joined together by a unique cast-zinc connector, with sheet metal shelves fitting neatly into the frames. A leveling foot allows for 3/4-inch of adjustment, perfect for old or uneven floors. The entire offering is assembled using just six pole lengths and six shelf sizes configured in different arrangements to create the finished pieces, continuing the modernist “kit-of-parts” approach to design.
