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.

In this piece, the extreme visual lightness is paired with the net solidity. 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.

From 1965, when Shiro Kuramata founded the Kuramata Design Office in Tokyo, to 1991, when he died, Kuramata designed some of the most significant and lasting items ever produced. Besides his connection with the Japanese design world, Kuramata’s significance in western design is shown first with Memphis, than in 1987 with Cappellini which made him its best designer to introduce the brand on international stage. His work is represented in the permanent collections of Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, of New York Moma, of Metropolitan Museum and of the Museum of Modern Art in Toyama.
