Smash is unveiling shelving units based on salvaged 19th century library shelves.
The cast vertical aspects of the originals encapsulate the best of early industrial design: an economy of materials; simplified lines; exposed structural elements that retain classic proportions.
Smash has updated the bookshelf by rendering its parts in aluminum and mixed wood and metal, as well as introducing colour. The reformatted shelves are suitable for domestic application and include a stand-alone unit as well as built-in, cantilevered option.
