A focus on detail.

This Walnut Bookcase showcases a window that exposes the edge of each shelf which wraps perfectly around its upright, leaving absolutely no room for error.

The split shelf design not only adds to the light feel of the overall piece, but has been specifically designed with seasonal movement in mind. Due to the accuracy of each component of this bookcase, it’s vital to ensure that when the timber expands and contracts, that it moves into the centre of the shelves and not affect the accurate detailing of the relationship between the edges of the shelf and the detail of the uprights.

Made specifically for a client who has an extensive collection of books who not only wants to store his prized possessions but also wants to show them off.

The slanted shelves are designed for larger books at the bottom and progressively get smaller with each row, allowing books of all sizes to be displayed without getting lost.

Designed to fully come apart using mechanical fixings for ease of transport.
