Étagère de coin - corner bookshelf

Between furniture and microarchitecture, this Corner Shelf emphasises the corner, a significant space in the house (a meeting between two planes, a boundary). Objects can be hidden or shown according to their place in the shelf. The one stepladder enables a quick and easy access to skim through a book.
Painted wood - 75 x 90 x 210 cm.

Blio bookcase

A modular bookcase that combines the minimal nature of the colour white with a basic and relaxing feel of a library. The Blio is an arrangement of modular elements with different widths and depths, creating a large amount of surface and storage space whilst maintaining accessibility. The compartments of the library can be opened laterally, aided particularly by the front doors that open and close without a handle thanks to the push-pull system.
