From the architect: To preserve this sensational viewpoint and ensure maximum daylight for reading, the Vitrine Shelf is designed to be seemingly and elegantly invisible. Making use of a 15mm thick acrylic top for book display and storage, pairing with a hand-brushed stainless steel base for large books’ display, the shelf not only permits light to flood in through the full-height glazing, but also reflects natural light in as indirect illumination.

Developed from a modular system, the shelves can easily be stacked and hence grow with the library. Interchangeability is maximized allowing the Vitrine Shelves to operate as a bench, display or table.
