Digitally Fabricated Bookshelf

dbd Studio - Digitally Fabricated Bookshelf from Adam Crain on Vimeo.

A custom bookshelf specifically design and built for a condo in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC. An organic curving surface was creating in Rhino that stretched from floor to ceiling and overhead, terminating at the existing bulkhead. 17 sheets of 3/4" birch plywood were then CNC milled to notch together and form the undulating, gridded mass.

Vorbild für die Anordnung der Regalböden ist der Straßenverlauf der Hauptverkehrsadern der Stadt. Die charakteristischen Merkmale des Stadtbildes wie Innenstadtring, radiale Einfallsstraßen, Plätze und Parks werden aufgenommen und finden
sich übersetzt in der Konstruktion wieder. Die 180cm x 180cm x 37cm messenden Regale können aufgrund Ihrer Standfestigkeit sowohl als Wandregal, als auch als Raumteiler verwendet werden.

Fold is a striking metal shelf made from a single sheet of steel hand folded into shape along lasercut perforations. The complex folded form, inspired by plant growth and structures, is efficiently manufactured using minimal processes which result in a product exhibiting no joints or welds and holds an air of mystery as to how it could have been made. Its assymetrical form is dynamic with clean and precise lines, which due to the lasercut perforations appear stitched providing a crafted and tailored aesthetic. As a collection the shelves work together creating a striking graphic pattern of cellular structures which branch out and colonise the wall creating a decorative and functional 3D feature. Usable in two orientations it allows the customer to create unique arrangements adaptable to their environment.

The furniture can serve as shelving, a resting platform, display or even as a seat. It can act as a suspended wall unit, an open bookcase against the wall, or it can be used as a dividing wall to separate the spaces in a room or other environments, thanks to the innovative possibility whereby it can be anchored or suspended from the ceiling.

Thomas Jefferson's Monticello® Revolving Bookstand

Among the many ingenious devices found in Jefferson's Cabinet, this one perhaps most clearly suggests Jefferson's passion for knowledge. One can imagine him turning the stand, completely engrossed, consulting five books at once to find the answer to a burning question. Our bookstand is a line-by-line reproduction of the original, which was made in the joinery at Monticello, probably from Jefferson's own design. It's great for cross-checking information from several sources or just keeping reference books and current reading handy. Made of solid mahogany with a soft, hand-polished finish, the rotating stand holds five books at adjustable angles on rests that fold down to form a 12" cube.

You can spin the original one by clicking here.Monticello and here

Beyond being a multiple-use object Scalo – like many of us – has two souls. Normally it is a wooden monolith, lacking handles or other external protrusions. Only two side openings allow to catch a glimpse of a colourful inner world. Those who see it from this point of view can use it as a sidetable or a stool. To access its other soul one only has to remove from its side a stainless steel lock. This will allow Scalo to open, to rotate and to become a new form, revealing its hidden identity that gives it its name: a small colourful library step ladder (scala) that doubles as a small bookcase. Like a magic key that opens up new uses, the stainless steel lock, once re-inserted in the back of the object, will set it in the open configuration and allow it to be moved around. Beoc and cerruti baleri chose a traditional manufacturing technology to make it precious, with a noble structure of bent plywood that reveals itself on the edges of the internal panels and steps. Scalo’s introverted nature - it doesn’t reveal any hinges or other mechanical component when it is closed - makes it a simple and yet sophisticated character.

YPS (Your Private Shelving)

This modular storage system is based on construction elements of bridges, and old steel buildings. Chains of diagonal supporting beams, creating strong construction triangles, are fixed on the shelves. The repetition, and flow of the diagonal lines give the system an exciting, and characteristic appearance. The system is expandable with walls, and doors giving the opportunity to create closed compartments customisable to ones wishes.
