Concept

The Itaipu bookcase features a rhythmical succession of interchanging volumes and empty and filled spaces. Its three-dimensional arrangement establishes a hierarchy, bringing order to the chaos of books and different shaped objects. The elements, which act as bookends, alternate to create recessed and raised spaces to hold books and ornaments. Itaipu is named after the South American dam – a fascinating megastructure with a powerful architectural design.

The bookcase is made up of modular shelves (available in two lengths, 1000 mm and 1600 mm), which can be fitted horizontally and vertically as desired. The shelves are in high-density rigid structural polyurethane with a soft touch matt lacquered finish.

The surface is slightly embossed and the bookcase is available in white RAL 9010, black and aluminium grey. Each shelf is fitted with an adjustable bar and wall anchors to fit it to the wall.
