Frames 2.5 Bookcase by Gerard de Hoop

Home > Winners > #44380


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Frames 2.5

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bookcase

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration of the bookcase is the shape of a simple rectangular frame.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The grid is made up of 10 metal frames that can serve as a free standing bookcase or as a room divider. The "boards" have different widths and are open in the middle, allowing them to be suitable for flat objects as well as hangable items. A metal container (accessory), can serve as a planter. If desired, a glass or wooden shelf can be placed on the widest open frames.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
A minimal approach to your household shelf where all the components fit into a single rectangular plank structure. When de frames are assembled the shelf has an inconsistent composition creating an interesting play of graphical lines.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The concept of this bookcase started in 2014. The first prototype was made in 2015

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The metal frames are welded and powder coated. The frames are assembled with small black bolts. A invisible metal part is used for stability.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions bookcase: h 193,5 x w 190 x d 39 cm Dimensions flatpack: h 193,5 x w 39 x d 3 cm

TAGS:
bookcase, room divider, metal, steel, frames, furniture, flatpack, shelves, graphic, minimal,

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Before Frames 2.5 there was Frames 2.0, Frames wall and Frames 1.0. All of them are open structured bookshelfs. However, Frames 2.5 and 2.0 are the only flat-packs. Frames 2.0 is a wooden pre version that has a grid of 12 frames that fits in two rectangles. I tried to make an even more minmal and thinner version. The metal version Frames 2.5 has a grid of 10 frames that now fits in to one rectangle.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to make a functional, exciting and subtle piece furniture out of one rectangular shape.
