Jack Bookcase

Michael Anastassiades for B&B Italia

Made in Italy

Jack Book­case is the first collab­o­ra­tion between B&B Italia and Michael Anas­tas­si­ades. Known for his skills in working with light, the Cypriot designer has designed a modular wall system with a strik­ing degree of tech­no­log­i­cal perfec­tion. This design chal­lenge revis­its and modern­izes a design classic—the 1950s bookcase room divider—trans­form­ing it into a compli­ment with a clean, essen­tial yet archi­tec­tural struc­ture. The genius of the piece lies in conceal­ing the engi­neered supports, includ­ing those holding up the lami­nated shelves, inside the verti­cal elements with a rounded section made of extruded aluminum and inte­grated by an exclu­sive, totally-invis­i­ble, floor-to-ceiling tele­scopic adjustment system.
