The Combus system from Narbutas: more than just a shelf

This modular shelving system serves as a traditional shelf while offering a way to shape and partition spaces.

The COMBUS shelving system consists of freestanding shelving units, planter shelf units and shelving units for mounting on cabinets. With this collection designers can divide the spaces in open-plan offices and create varying levels of privacy.

The furniture has many possible combinations, including the traditional I-shaped but also L- and T-shaped pieces, which are particularly suitable for creating different zoning. It can be placed in the middle of a space, against a wall or shaped as a corner.

The system also solves any storage issues – providing closed or open shelving, boxes and drawers on both sides. Planter boxes allow the easy integration of plants to create a biophilic office environment. COMBUS also supports meetings by enabling the attachment of displays and ensures a wire-free, safe environment.

The shelving system is available in a variety of back panels and different combination finishes including metal, melamine and PET felt to create unique and bespoke combinations. The product is made from recycled materials and easily disassembled, so it can be sorted or renewed according to changing needs. The recyclability of COMBUS is 99%.

You can find COMBUS at the NARBUTAS showroom in London: 3rd Floor, 46 Sekforde Street, London, Greater London EC1R.
