The bookshelf is a flat-pack product, easy to put together, yet attractive. It bulges from the wall like a sector of a sphere, creating a sci-fi effect in the room. Besides being an eye-catcher, it is also practical and the film-coated plywood is easy to clean.
Dimensions: 2200x2200x400mm

Sliding Shelf

A wooden board is fixed on the wall and supports a number of boxes. They can be hanged, removed, slid freely, always changing the layout of the shelves. The back of the boxes are constructed in such a way that they compose with the board a plane surface combining different colours and materials.

Hamachi er et opbevaringsmøbel der består af 5 hylder, der kan åbnes og lukkes med fleksible latexbånd. Jeg har forsøgt at arbejde med tilgangen til opbevaringsmøblet på en ny måde, og med enkle virkemidler at udfordre den klassiske skabslåges funktion og æstetik.

Le Bouc

Red, mobile and handy, Bouc is your ideal companion for reading. Bouc, a small, varnished piece of furniture dedicated to books, can either be an extension to your library, an occasional table for reading or placing books, or a desk for your book of the moment. Bouc loves books. It supports them, open or closed, keeps them available at all times, whether you are in your office, drawing room or garden.
It was designed by Mathieu Gabiot, edited by Speculoosbook and made in Belgium.
Le Bouc


Cest une étagère qui reprend dans sa forme un système graphique issu dune structure en zellige (mosaïque marocaine). Le meuble Zelli est composé de 8 modules identiques, qui s'emboîtent et s'assemblent grâce à 3 formes de découpes différentes. Cette variation au niveau de la découpe n'a aucune incidence sur la forme du module, d'où un ensemble harmonieux et parfaitement symétrique. Le meuble est donc auto-structurant et auto-bloquant, c'est-à-dire qu'il ne vous faudra ni clou, ni vis, ni connaissances en bricolage pour monter le Zelli en dix minutes de façon solide et durable

Off the wall

The idea was to make a 3-dimensional wallpaper, which gives an additional function more than just decoration. The wallpaper would roll out away from the wall as if it came to life. Wallpapers goes out into the room, test their limits and turn a moment into something else and then go back and establish themselves in their traditional role and place.

Isaac Layman's unnervingly banal color photographs of household items are astonishingly subtle in their perception-based tomfoolery. The Seattle artist's earliest work on view presents an almost-seamless image of a bookcase whose spines are turned away from the camera, so that the books become little more than nameless swathes of bound paper. The viewer's impulse to scan the shelves for familiar titles is doubly thwarted when they notice that the photograph almost seems to shift its perspective, depending on where the viewer looks. Almost imperceptibly, Layman has combined photographs taken from different vantage points in creating Bookcase, resulting in a deceptive network of impossible sightlines.
