IMG_0949.JPG

Inspired by plant cell organization and the arbitrary colors of science textbook diagrams, this bookshelf features built-in bookends and a unique curve for displaying objects. The bookshelf was made from the process of bent lamination, laminating plywood and maple veneer with a paint and Polywhey finish. Solid maple drawers and door. The bookshelf hangs on the wall using a French cleat system.
