Tolbiac by Gregoire de Lafforest
Tolbiac is a book shelf with an asymmetrical design: the 4 bottommost shelves protrude from the base of an end unit distinguishing them from the rest of the bookcase. The front edge is worked into a helix so that it follows the same slope as the side panel which protrudes from the wall, giving the entire bookcase a clean, uninterrupted look. The end piece can be oriented to the right or left, depending on personal preference. This element of the system, which can stand alone, can also be expanded with additional straight edge modules. Tolbiac is available in natural or black oak veneer. Available in two standard heights, or may be customized in between.
