The artistically stylish bookcase by Comité de Proyectos is much more than an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture. The Mexico City design firm focused on producing a functional work of art that would pay homeage to the resilience and strength of the local community. More precisely, Comité de Proyectos conceived the sculptural bookcase to "reflect on safety and stability" after the devastating earthquake (magnitude of 7.1) in Mexico last year.
The intended message is conveyed through the use of materials. The company tapped solid white oak, metal, and concrete for the silhouette of the stylish bookcase. The composition is arranged in an incredibly balanced and sturdy manner. Comité de Proyectos' design will make the perfect centerpiece for contemporary homes that are seeking to embrace art.
