An angular zigzag bookshelf by Swedish designer Jonas Bohlin (1953-). In 1981 Bohlin began studying constructional engineering in Stockholm, where he started to challenge the idea of form and function with his highly debated sculptural chair named ‘Concrete’. He went on to become a highly celebrated architect and designer walking the tightrope between art and design.
The shelves form a vertical zigzag, with six ledges designed to support a book or two with covers facing out. The shelves are supported by an angular concrete base which cuts the harsh black form and provides stability – both form and function. The shelf remains in good vintage condition with some marks to the wooden shelves and natural chipping to the concrete base.
