Buchstabler bookcase, 2004

Buchstabler bookcase by Tom Fischer for Nils Holger Moormann.

The Buchstabler rotating shelving unit for paperback books. A maximum number of books can be stored in a space-saving and organised way (approx. 25 pocket books per level). The bookcase is simply held together without screws or traditional fixings. It is freestanding and if required can be extended to add more height.

It is possible to assemble the Buchstabler bookcase at coffee-table height (two levels) and up to Buchstabler seven levels to make a tall tower of 174cm. The Buchstabler shelving unit is held together with a simple, but clever technique: a string connects the base and the top of the shelf. The tension, produced from twisting the string, holds the unit tightly together. It becomes nearly invisible when completely filled with books. A base made of cast concrete makes the birch plywood shelving unit stable.

Shelf surface available in black or white.

Buchstabler bookcase can be extended with single compartments. Assembly without tools.

Available in 6 configurations. Please see the download section for the downloadable pdf for full specifications and assembly instructions.
