The strongest shelving is made of steel. Some steel shelving is made with compartments.
The older corner type shelves used to have a decorative wood or metal bracket that would be visible. Although it was easily seen it was made to blend into the decor of the room. With the modern corner shelves they can be hung with out any of the brackets being seen.
