How to use advanced technology to achieve the ultimate simplicity
Cell is a visual delight and a technical wonder. Its slender wires are tailormade for Cohen’s unique design, as are the shelves which are made from high-strength steel allowing thin shelves to carry heavyweight literature.
Hear it from the designer himself:
“I set out to design a shelf for someone who owns a lot of books. It had to be very effective in spatial terms, yet aesthetically attractive – strong yet lightweight.”
“The idea sneaked up on me from behind, while I was sleeping. I pictured a bridge, with wires and pylons. I also saw the shape of the double helix, the structure of DNA, with its long, thin strings.”
