The Uten.Silo by Dorothee Becker from Vitra is a design classic in every sense. The idea was derived from a multi-pocketed fabric storage system which hung in her father's shop when she was a child. She was inspired to create something in plastic, which would be easier to mass produce and be both practical and versatile and Uten.Silo was born.

With its different-sized and shaped containers, its metal hooks and clips Utensilo was the ultimate solution for organising offices, kitchens, workshops, bathrooms and children's rooms and keeping them paraphernalia free.

Uten.Silo was originally launched at the Frankfurt Fair in 1969 and her husband (lighting designer Ingo Maurer) invested £100,000 to get production started for both the original sized Uten.Silo and a smaller version in 1970.

Initially a huge hit Uten.Silo production ceased when the oil crisis of 1974 hit the cost of plastic and consumer confidence.

It was relaunched in 2002 by the Vitra Design Museum who now produces both the original 1969 version of Uten.Silo and a smaller one dating from 1970.

Both the smaller one (Uten.Silo II) and the larger one (Uten.Silo I) are available in white, black and red.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
