From concept to development, the aim of this project was to unify local craftsmanship with low-tech machinery to achieve a pure and honest design. The Bookshelf A1 is built in an external wooden skeleton that holds the solid oak shelves. This distribution of the elements allows infinite combinations of woods, colors and even other materials such as stones and metals.
The design is focused on achieving lightness in an object that usually is visually heavy. The shelves look as though they are floating, which also allows you to see the below handmade wooden connections and appreciate the craftsmanship and details of the design.
