On the death of Florence Knoll Bassett

Red Baron is a modular bookshelf that focuses on material essence and personalized finishing for a unique touch and look, designed to store and display remarkable collections. The support structure is made with steel posts clad in anodized extruded aluminium, while the shelves have a refined aluminium finish. The parts allow for compositions of different heights and lengths, using modules one meter in width and 45 centimeters in depth. Red Baron always has a clean, transparent image in terms of form, with a visible, solid structure.
Delicate but forceful lines generate a harmonious aesthetic balance, the result of removal of any superfluous elements in a project that puts a clear accent on its contemporary character.
From the residence to the workplace, the bookshelf can alter its function while maintaining its aesthetic characteristics, depending on the choice of materials – extra-clear tempered glass or chestnut wood – which can also be applied in a mixed approach for the back and sides. The result is a family open to expansion, easily coordinated with the other products in the Knoll collection.
