ALINE - J08
Open sectional floor-ceiling mounted aluminium bookcase
Linear. Light. Of a rigorous elegance. Bookshelves as the tasteful backdrop of a home or office.
Designed by Dante Bonuccelli.
The architect-designer of Argentinean origin imagines a clean, extra-thin structure. Made from extruded aluminium, in the neutral hues of white, charcoal grey and anodised aluminium, it lets the books do the job of decorating the environment.
It can be assembled with maximum ease.
The structure can be equipped with containers, with tilt or sliding doors, and drawers, and is suitable for the installation of LEDs in the uprights, resulting in a subdued but highly suggestive scenographic effect.
Aline, the container system designed by Dante Bonuccelli makes its debut in a new variant anchored to the ceiling.
The uprights, available in two sizes suitable for rooms 270 cm or 300 cm high, are secured by pressure between floor and ceiling.
The new uprights can be adjusted for height from 268 to 290 cm by means of adjustable feet at either end.
The new floor to ceiling bookcase may be installed side to side to the self-standing version and adjacent shelving will be aligned.
Shelves, single and double drawers, modules with flap doors, comfortable and also available in versions opening from the top down, and magazine racks, can all be mounted at different heights thanks to ad hoc holes in the uprights.
From now on, aline will be equipped with Caimi sound absorbent panels, which use Snowsound technology to achieve selective absorption at different frequencies and thus optimise the acoustical environment even though the panels are vey thin.
Snowsound panels are available in two sizes, 160 and 120 cm, and two widths, 60 and 90 cm, and thanks to their easy-to-use hooking system they can also be fitted to aline systems purchased previously.
The sound absorbent panels make aline the ideal solution to organise work areas, creating spaces that are sheltered visually and acoustically, as well as providing practical panels where to organise job-related information.
Another new feature is a system of magnetic bookends that come in kits of 2 bookends for 90 cm shelves and 3 bookends for 120 cm shelves. The kits are mounted inside the shelves and remain completely unseen, leaving the clean lines of the structure unaltered.
Made from extruded stove-enamelled aluminium in neutral shades of white, graphite grey or textured metallic grey, aline leaves the books the task to organise space, and thanks to its simple, straightforward design is a veritable architectural element that is able to organise space.
