Nan-15 bookends bookshelf

This slightly peculiar book shelf comes from the frustration that bookshelves almost always fail to do what its name suggest, and keep the books without the help of extra elements or bookends. My reaction to it was the naïve thought that if the bookends are anyways there, why not try and make a complete shelf out of them. The most common bookends being made of folded sheet steel dictated the material and the only thing left was solving some gravity issues…

Should you stack your books spines in?

A new trend to ‘coordinate’ the look of your library by turning the spines to face inward defies good sense. But apparently it’s catching on.

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.

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.
