The Pagina Bookcase Looks Like a Magnified Model of an Open Novel

One of the rare examples of a smart-looking piece of representational furniture is the Pagina Bookcase. It may have been designed to take the appearance of something that it isn’t, but it does so in a subtle enough way with formal properties that are appealing to the contemporary eye.

Created for Cassina by Denis Vasset and Jean Louis Berthet, this sculptural shelving unit comes in two models. One moves from left to right with and inward curvature becoming an outward curve, while the other piece is its mirror image. When placed side-by-side, the pair of shelves take on the undulating surface of the pages of an enormous open book. The lacquered wood Pagina Bookcase embodies a whimsical but very appropriate form for a library, especially when treated with a white wash.
