Fold. Nendo.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Japanese studio Nendo have designed a zig-zagging wooden bookshelf. Called Fold, the piece for Japanese producer Conde House is made of interlocking wooden boards and has a zig-zag footprint so books can be slotted into recesses facing diagonally outwards in two directions. Apertures in the back of shelves in one orientation mean they can be accessed from the back as well.

“Thanks to the superior craftsmanship of Conde House, a wood furniture manufacturer in Asahikawa in northern Japan, the joints appear seamless, as though single boards have been bent and interwoven like paper chains or a woven textile,” says Nendo. “It’s virtually impossible to know, looking at the shelves, how the parts are connected.”
