SENDAI

Aluminium and wood bookcase

Manufacturer HORM.IT

design by
(2004)
Movement and flexibility summarize the emotional power of Toyo Ito, who in this sculpture-bookcase captures the design essence of Sendai’s media centre (Japan), which he designed and used as inspiration. This leap in scale consists of six light shelves connected through turned elements of solid wood, all different from each other in inclination and section. Sendai is definitely a piece of furniture of silent albeit captivating design, which reflects the typical oriental philosophy of the great architect.
Bookcase with MDF shelves veneered with polished aluminium. Structure composed of twenty-five turned wood elements, varying in diameter and at different angles, and made from solid alder and walnut, treated with oil. Black lacquered MDF plinth with adjustable feet.

FINISH
Shelves: mirror finish aluminium
Turned: solid walnut and alder wood
