In smaller rooms, bookcases are commonly erected against the walls. While many without backings might have suited the desired freestanding placement in the EHV 365 office, the custom Double Faced Shelving Unit is ideal.

Daphna Laurens had the client in mind specifically with the creation of this set of three abstract modules. The storage system comprises asymmetrical metal frames and thin metal ledges in black that fold around to produce cubbies and other shelves when approached from the other side. With this composition, different items can be stashed completely out of sight of the opposite face.

Several Double Faced Shelving Units are lined up in the workspace to create a room divider as a second function, plus their irregular contours produce a whimsical reference to mountain peaks.
