Rigidly Refined Bookcases
The Severin Bookshelf Strikes a Beautiful Balance of Function and Form

A collection of ledges, a base and a frame make up the Severin Bookshelf. It is a standard list of components, yet the way that the object has been assembled expresses more intrigue and elegance than most storage systems do.

Alex de Rouvray’s shelving unit comprises seven identical wooden boxes with open tops and fronts, suitable for accommodating a wide range of different books of various sizes. The flanking panels act as bookends in the place of an all-encompassing bordering frame and their edges define a clean invisible line where one might have been built.

The metal platform of the piece matches the dimensions of the cubbies above and anchors a stiff brace in place. All of the ledges that make up the suave minimalist Severin Bookshelf are supported by this one central spine for a daringly dignified visual effect.
