Urban bookcase

In recent years recycling became very popular. When it comes to books, there are several diy bookshelves, booths and cases for sharing old books all around the world. My proposal works for an exterior condition but it keeps visual delicacy of interior furniture. In contrary to classic shelves, this case allows users to see the books by covers - in case of the retro ones - usually well designed!

Ptolomeo Shelf

Ptolomeo Shelf is a surprising complement, a slightly bigger shelf that fits seamlessly between the shelves of the Ptolomeo bookcase and makes it even more serviceable. A small, precious desk when you need to jot down an inspiring idea, but also an original bedside table whenever you want to reach out for a book and do a little bedtime reading to help you relax before sleep.

La città è mobile! bookcase

La città è mobile! is a collection of furniture which interprets the archetypal forms of classical architecture and the wooden building blocks children play with... the thirteen pieces that form a comprehensive range of seats, steps, tables, consoles and bookshelves are the translation at the scale of furniture of the classical typologies of the arcade, the temple, the aquaduct... Polyurethane resin, mdf, plywood

A couple’s decision to combine bookshelves supplies a series of revelations

"One of the funniest and most interesting questions you can ask a group of couples at a party is whether or not they have combined their bookshelves. I discovered this once I began asking it, looking for advice from others who might have done this. Most often, thus far, in my highly selective, completely unscientific research, the answer is no. Reasons get thrown around, and one is common. “I told her,” a friend said, who had just completed this process, “‘That stack of doubles by the entrance, that you will not get rid of, that is your doubt about our long-term future.’” He laughed as he said this."

Quobus bookcase

Quobus is a modular display unit of enamelled steel cubes. Quobus units are either monochromatic, bi-coloured or multicoloured, made of a combination of three different sized cubes. Each cube is enamelled in one of five colours (off white, charcoal, pastel green, pastel violet and pastel blue) and pinned together with brass screws to form a larger unit, which are sold in a variety of configurations and sizes.

The modular display unit offers a storage solution for books, and creates distinct environments for display objects within each cube. Made from steel and enamelled in Belgium, each cube is extremely robust. Marc aimed to counteract sagging, ineffective bookshelves at the same time as creating something sculptural: “the overriding inspiration and need was to create an object to tick all these boxes: it is hard to find things that hold books and objects that also have an identity and look good.”
