Shelves were formed and are consistently used as mere braces for the collection of possessions. They tend to offer compact and efficient storage, organization and ample visibility and accessibility of their contents. Interestingly, this BookCaseScreenWall by IwamotoScott Architecture satisfies the first two criteria, approaches the third one rather obliquely and manages to offer a couple of other unexpected advantages with its design as well.
Acting as a substantial partition between the offices of its makers and the headquarters of Obscura Digital, it behaves much like a structural component and an accessory. The business next door can enjoy the benefits of using the back of the 186 powder-coated laser-cut boxes as a pixelated projection screen. On the other side of the divider, the angled BookCaseScreenWall shelving unit shades books from the direct sunlight that shines into the office.
