The ‘Zig Zag’ book shelf was developed with the apartment’s space constraints and the client wishes in mind. Part of the living area is used as passage from the entrance hall to the bedrooms. The book shelf offers a background for this crossing, linking thus the two different spaces and opening itself at the same time towards the living room.
The book shelf ‘grows’ in depth from 5 cm near the lobby to 50 cm on the opposite side, near the bedrooms. Being a modular system, this growth was designed as a series of ‘saw teeth’ with an ever increasing depth, that mimics the arrangement of the wooden floor.
The materials used, oak veneered and black coated MDF, support the design dynamics, allowing the owner to transform it’s aesthetics with each book or object placed inside.
