Product description

For this project, Philippe Nigro started with a simple parallelepiped which he then distorted by precision-cutting a 20° notch out of one side and another of 19° from the opposing side. Being highly coherent in his experimenting, Philippe Nigro had already tried out this type of notch on his Inséparable footstool table, which he designed for Ligne Roset in 2010. It is also interesting to note that this notch echoes the shape of a half-open book...

The double-sided parallelepiped has an irregular, canted shape with a maximum depth of 39.7 cm, but the fact that the depth at each end is identical makes it perfect for the juxtaposition of multiple units. The chosen height of 36.4 cm is extremely appropriate to its function as a bookshelf. The true stroke of genius, however, is that the irregular shape of the shelving module can be multiplied by 4 simply by rotating it either horizontally or vertically: by turning it over first one way and then another, one obtains 4 chests, each notched in totally different ways. All that remains is to stack and/or juxtapose several such modules to obtain the desired configuration, a seemingly random construction employing an indecipherable number of very distinct chests.

When stacked, chests are held in place by their own weight (13 kg) and steadied by small non-slip rubber feet located between each chest. A wall fixing system is planned. It is also possible to play with colour by mixing the 5 finishes on offer: white, argile, yellow, walnut or elephant lacquer.
