Shiro Kuramata

1970

Designed by Shiro Kuramata, Bookshelf is a two-sided module made of white matte lacquered panels. The particularity of this bookshelf is the varying size of the compartments, which perfectly reflects Kuramata’s idea that the volume of space required by each object must be proportionate to its dimensions.

Suitable for use alone, where it becomes almost sculptural, Bookshelf can also become a continuous bookcase when composed with numerous modules, or be used to divide a space while still allowing light and air to pass through.
