Bookcase TOTEM

A life full of treasures needs precious spaces to display them.

Nicolette de Waart’s modular metal sheets bookcase units pulled into a-symmetry by its angular side, which creates a kaleidoscopic effect of angles for storage, display and memories of your life. The units – against the wall, wall-mounted or in room divider form – can stack up or across, in symmetrical rank, or asymmetrical patterns.

London-based Nicolette says: “Bookcases have evolved from simply housing books, becoming also a reflection of who people are, and the special things they have in their lives. I wanted to combine the function of storing books with the idea of a cabinet of curiosities. The shape allows people to mix and match the unit of display, putting their own creativity into the process.

Product info: Available colours: white, black, light grey, dark grey, red and copper brown To create your own personalised set or purchase single units, please get in touch with Clippings for more information
