Choice is ultimately what’s on offer with System 1224. Taking design cues from the elegance and simplicity of International Style, this modular shelving system’s clean lines, rectilinear forms, and electrified features allow System 1224 to either take center stage or recede into the background of any commercial, workplace, or hospitality project. Interchangeable components make installation and reconfiguration of displays easy and tool-free, giving the user the opportunity to quickly grow and change a project with seasons, moods, and styles of the moment. And it pairs effortlessly with other B+N systems to create a wholly bespoke look.
- Anywhere illuminated shelves, cabinets, displays, and graphics are needed
- Perimeter walls
- Floor-to-ceiling room dividers
- Rolling floor units
Aluminum uprights act like T-bars that are easily attached to walls or floor fixtures. The single fin of the T-bar comes with pins pre-installed, so changing out accessories can be done from the front of the display.
The uprights come ready to accept all LED-lit accessories and lightboxes. Wiring is cleverly hidden behind the system panels for a clean, uniform aesthetic.
Panel sizes range anywhere from 12”x24” (giving the system its namesake) up to 24”x96”. Floor fixtures can liberate System 1224 from a room’s walls, allowing a room divider to pull double duty as a display.

Thoughts Behind the Design
System 1224 looks to International Style, and its predecessor, Modernism, for inspiration. It is free of extraneous ornamentation, allowing the pure expression of its functionality to serve as a synonym for its beauty, like Philip Johnson’s Glass House or Mies Van Der Rohe’s Seagram Building. Like its stylistic muse, System 1224 is versatile in application, finding a home in projects of all typologies, echoing the adoption of International Style in urban contexts around the globe.
Modularity doesn’t equal being boring. System 1224’s grid breaking feature gives designers the ability to create dynamic rhythms within displays, adding a subtle element of playfulness to something as basic and functional as shelving. Panel sizes can be as wide as 48” or as tall as 96”, making the possibilities endless.
Color, finish, and graphic panel options can transform System 1224 into something truly unique. In addition to a variety of metal, wood veneer, acrylic, and fabric panels, System 1224 can be paired with B+N’s Iconic and Infused Veneer Panel systems for a one-of-a-kind display.
