After having visited Gruppo Euromobil’s fascinating new showroom a few months back, we were struck by Zalf and its motto: “Design that generates space”. All it takes is one look at the brand’s furniture to understand what that means and observe how its modular systems become genuine architectonic structures.
Zalf’s bookcases and systems carry out storage, decorative, and structural purposes, as they are usable both for separating and linking spaces and organizing the walls.
We like Zalf’s philosophy of a fluid home which is fit for its inhabitants, and not the other way around. The modular systems allow one to express new ways of designing the home and fitting them to everyone’s needs to a tee.
Modular systems for the living room
Whether they are suspended compositions or wall systems, the possibility of having a completely custom solution is what makes the living room’s modular systems irresistible. Zalf’s catalog is special because it allows for countless designs as each solution has its own modern and elegant language.
But what is the difference between a composition for the living room and a wall system? Technically, the wall system is also a composition, but we use these words to distinguish between solutions with bases and floor or suspended elements from those which have their own back paneling where the elements get attached.
In addition to these two types, which can be typically found in the TV area, there are also modular bookcases. Zalf has also been able to break down and innovate this furniture throughout the years and has released some incredibly striking models.
Compositions for the living room
The living room composition typically starts from a low and long element which is fit for supporting the TV and other devices and objects. This module can be placed on the ground, with or without legs, or “floating”. Afterwards, one has total freedom to create a puzzle of shelves, cabinets with types of doors, and small bookcases, designing the wall with orthogonal shapes. This geometric composition can be accentuated by choosing contrasting finishes, pairing two different colors, or even two different materials like wood and lacquer.
The possibilities are truly endless and it is worth taking a look at the entire Zalf catalog and getting into contact with pros to create an ad hoc design. For example, you can take a look at three compositions below for the living room: respectively, Z508,Z035 and Z033.
The modular wall systems contain an element which more classic living rooms lack: the back panel which supports all the elements and acts, indeed, as a wall. Here too one has complete compositional freedom, but there is also the possibility of setting off the area with an elegant panel which comes in different woods or colors.
To get you to fall in love with this option, we have chosen a special collection which is both trendy and refined. In fact, Zalf introduced the Modulor panels which can be combined to the other modular systems in 2022. Here they are in the charcoal Modulor and blue Modulor versions, complete with various storage elements like the base with the Plana drawer, the Unoedue suspended modules, the elegant burnished metal shelves, and the City Glass doors.
Modular system for bookcases
A large bookcase is a piece which can enhance the living space, especially if one chooses a model as spectacular as Zalf’s Freespace. We already took a look at Freespace during the Salone del Mobile and the Fuorisalone, when we took a tour of Milan’s best showrooms. This modular bookcase is made in walnut and embellished by smoked City Glass doors which seem to be perfect for showcasing and protecting works of art, porcelain, or prized books.
Freespace is, however, only the latest option available in an extensive catalog dedicated to the living room. It is a symbol of Zalf’s philosophy which, by starting from an innovative modular system, allows us to create our dream spaces.
