Free from composition and modularity, French minimalist designer Charlotte Perriand takes a modern approach to early 20th century art, industry, and craftsmanship. Inspired by machine-age technology, the Bibliothéque emphasizes industrial materials, clean lines, and free-form shape. Supported by a wall mounting, the shelf is composed of varnished oak shelves, subdivided by black and white colored panels, making it an engaging addition to any space. Modular painted aluminum panels are screwed in place to separate the wooden horizontal elements in seven different heights.
