Glad to share the news of a new product entering the market. It’s time of another bookshelf entirely made of steel designed by Carmine Scotch for the Off the wall contest launched by Mabele on Desall.com. The bookshelf is now part of the new Mabele collection after being featured at the Fiera del Libro of Turin and at the Maison et Objet of Paris, where it was met with great enthusiasm.
The bookshelf is one of the 900 entries submitted by 626 participants from all over the world (see Off the wall – Winner announcement)
“Waveform” is a system of curvilinear shelves representing the undulating waves of the sea. When viewed from the side you can notice this wavy effect, while the front reveals its function as library. Each blade has an undulating pro le different from the other one with the purpose to create a three dimensional waveform of strong view impact. Waveform has been realizing in a set of three different modules that put side by side adapt themselves to the space around, adorning the wall in an original way.
