Carter Bookcase

Design: Mauro Lipparini

Bookcase: new eucalyptus wood shelves, textured silver-grey Magnesio metal structure.

“A man's bookcase will tell you everything you'll ever need to know about him.” So novelist Walter Mosley observed, quoting his own father. Indeed, the bookcase is among any home or office’s most soul-revealing pieces of furniture, a window into one’s interests, expertise, and heritage.

Within the scope of the Executive Office collection, the Carter bookcase responds to the highly articulated forms of the Wall Street desk with more rectilinear geometries.

Lipparini here brings a vital sense of both rigor and versatility to the piece’s combined functions of holding and display. The horizontal surfaces, made of exotic eucalyptus wood, resonate with vertical panels of worked and textured metal in a stochastic pattern, yielding spaces like musical measures of different length. The combination of material and kinetic form makes Carter more than just a useful item for today. It stands ready to be a personal showcase for years to come, the physical expression of one’s spirit and mind and all one’s many stories.

  • STRUCTURE: metal sheet oxy grey varnished or magnesium textured (silver grey).

    SHELVES: wood veneered in thermo-treated eucalyptus or zebrano.
