Estos chicos de Budapest me tienen loco. Sus geniales diseños siempre se salen. Tan sencillos, tan potentes, tan bonitos.
“At the beginning of the design process by this bookshelf, the main idea was to keep
it as simple as we can. But this simplicity appears not in the form, but rather in
the construction of the furniture. It was designed to avoid complicated connections,
in order to preserve the simplicity of building.
The bookshelf consists of two kinds of elements, that can be put together without the
need of fixing or extra linking elements. The parts rest on each other by the force of
gravity. In conclusion, it can be easily varied, disassembled, and put together again.
The shelf contains two kinds of spaces, in the middle, one is only for the books, and
on the two sides, two narrow zones are formed, where the objects of daily life can be
placed. The shelf is made of two materials, large, light colored pinewood, that provides
the form, and small oak rods for sustainment. A slight contrast remains between the
two materials in the form, as well as in the color.”
