KÖLLEN: THE INTERACTIVE BOOKSHELF COLLECTION
The interactive bookshelf collection is a project that emerges from the idea of Köllen Bookshelf, an innovative piece of furniture that can be modified to the user’s will. Köllen Collection offers a set of decorative products inspired in the nordic style and in the same vein as the bookshelf itself.
Köllen Bookshelf is a modular and interactive bookshelf which structure can be adapted to the user’s need. Its structure is created from a modular sistem formed by the repetition of adaptable pieces which have an independent working in matter of position, thus offering a multifunctional and decorative bookshelf which form changes depending on the objects placed
The piece features the typical traits of the Nordic style, either in matter of material or the shapes used. The former is essentially natural and uses light tones with shades of white. Concerning the shapes, the order dominates with the regularity of strips, partly broken by the sinuous border. This latter shape represents the mountains, in a nod to the piece’s originary region, which is repeated in its very name, Köllen, which is Swede for Alps.
The two possible positioning of the strips give the bookshelf a sensation of dynamism. First of all, the vertical positioning allows for the rest of relatively high objects, for the space occupied by the strips is drastically reduced. Furthermore, the strips can be used as hangers while in this positioning. On the other hand, the horizontal disposition is meant for the traditional usage of a bookshelf. The independent working of the strips makes any combination of positioning possible at any moment.
The main material of the bookshelf structure is natural birch plywood originating from Finland of 20 mm in thickness, lacquer in white and with a finishing touch of matt varnish paint. The subjection of the various elements between them is accomplished by using ironwork of stainless steel.
