drop bookcase

Design Nendo, 2013
Metal plate
Made in Italy by Cappellini

The Drop bookshelf is from Nendo's 'dancing squares' collection, released commercially by Cappellini. The tilted angle of the top shelf provides a variety of options for storing books - they can be opened to display particular pages, for example, draped over the angled top or stacked on a slant. They took away the back of the shelf so that it can be used from either side, expanding the places where it can be used.

Drop bookshelves are made of a thin sheet of laser-cut and matt-lacquered metal. The peculiarity of this project is the study of a scale of colors Nendo- inspired by the natural elements of Japan, from the rose-colored blossoms of cherry trees, to the warm gray of the stones of the brooks. Drop is offered in three sizes: two, four and five shelves. Includes black plastic adjustable glides. The low bookcase can also be used as a night stand.

Cappellini Furniture
Born into a family of furniture manufacturers, Giulio Cappellini began working for the family company in 1979, after earning his degree in architecture and studying business management. By the early 1980's, Guilio's leadership brought the Cappellini company into the world market from its three decade run as a handicraft furniture business. Hoping to expand the styles and materials used, Guilio scouted designers, bringing Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Marcel Wanders, Marc Newson, and Tom Dixon into the fold. Now, the firm boasts a varied, comprehensive collection rather than a singular style. Still, there are common threads: refined simplicity, dynamism, liveliness, humor.
