Mobile bookshelf

The bookshelf is a mobile block that controls the opening of the bed. Its U-shape covers the bed and shapes the room by closing the dressing area, the bed or the working space. The mobile system provides a closed sheltered bed as required by the client without completely shutting the space.

Column of shelves designed for OMEV company and made entirely in stainless steel. The shaped rod frame supports a series of hammered sheet metal planes, whose distance one from another grows the higher up one goes. The effect obtained is like the imaginary levitation of a series of paper sheets, beginning from an A4 ream resting on the floor, through an entirety of thin vertical lines.

Periodicals and books that are arranged on it become a mini, mobile library. The handle at the apex of LAKO can be used to move the rack around. Its pure structure of straight lines and angles permits various possibilities for storing publications.

Book carrier

This neat little piece of furniture not only keeps several volumes upright but lends them a whiff of class that transforms them into a decorative accent for any room. Known as book carriers, these devices mostly just sat on chests of drawers in passages bringing a vertical visual interest to storage furniture, also presumably these collections of books could more easily be carried from room to room. Made from sustainable timber and well shaped this is a little treasure! Dimensions: H11¼" x W13¾" x D11¾".

The dogma behind this product is probably quite obvious: what can you do with blocks of wood and cotton rope? Using a knot traditionally used for sailing and fishing, you can pull the strings and the shelf will disassemble. It can easily be put together again. The wood is collected from a local timber importers waste bin in London and consists of over 20 sorts of untreated wood. This is the first result of the rope and wood experiments.

Circus is a hand-made shelving system inspired by the playfulness of the big top.  Each shelving unit includes up to eight colorful wire 'cages' that easily plug into the solid oak  surfaces, meaning no tools are needed for assembly.  The cages create both exterior shelf space and a small interior space where favorite objects can be highlighted.

Plus One

Plus One is an additional storage container for any kind of regular shelf. Its sophisticatedly bent plywood results in an exclusive look. With a simple U-shaped tube Plus One can be attached to a shelf. Surely it doesn't add much more storage space, but helps to highlight your current folders or books in an unobstrusive way. It comes in walnut or maple feneer. Individually knitted socks for the tube not only protect the surfaces, but add an additional aesthetical level.
