Literis Bookshelf by Eckhard Beger

Home > Winners > #51730


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Literis

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Bookshelf

INSPIRATION:
The basic idea in designing Literis was to create a bookshelf suited for diverse book and document sizes in which the horizontal shelves and vertical dividers are inspired by stair shaped geometric ornamentations.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Literis by Eckhard Beger for ArteNemus is a bookshelf designed to accommodate books with a large variety of sizes (from 20cm to 60cm) as well as magazines and larges drawings (in the highest and lowest compartments). The shelves and dividers follow a stair shaped graphic pattern. The wood structure is covered with maple veneer while an ebony marquetry pattern is emphasizing the creations aesthetic contrast. When combining 2 or 3 units of Literis the ornamental pattern is continued and emphasized.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We probably all own books of largely diverse dimensions (from less than 16cm to more than 45cm of height). We also have large prints which are currently unused and sometimes end up on the top of or behind a cupboard gathering dust. The bookshelf Literis is designed to store books of diverse dimensions (20cm to 60cm), magazines and at the same time to protect large prints or posters (rolls of 100cm). Literis is conceived in 3 widths for rooms of diverse sizes. Different units can be combined.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in June 2016 in Geneva and finished in November 2016 in the same place. Literis was awarded the Artist of the Year award at the London International Creative Competition 2016.

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

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The structure of the shelf is made from a high quality plywood structure covered with a maple veneer. A numeric router is required to cut the paths for the ebony marquetry inlay.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Literis has been designed in 3 different widths to accommodate rooms of different sizes. Multiple units of Literis can be combined. Dimensions W x H x D: 161/124/94 x 202 x 35 cm

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The spacing of the shelves was chosen based on an analysis of the book collection of the city library. Based on a statistical approach these helped to determine height and width of the individual compartments.

CHALLENGE:
The main issue during the design process was to put the functional requirements (defining shelf distances corresponding to real books) and the aesthetic requirements (having an aesthetically attractive front) in line.
