Modular bookcase with metal frame

design by Francesco Rota

Free-thinking, freestanding bookcase

The architectural approach behind Plain belies a creative idea centred around fluidity and lightness. This freestanding bookcase includes many of the design features synonymous with Lema, not least modularity and customisation in terms of both composition and finishes. The sleek structure in lacquered metal with square cross-sections accommodates the shelves, which are available in different lengths and thicknesses. Arranged in a seemingly random order within a structure that almost blends into its surroundings, the shelves create compartments for storing books and objects of varying heights, bringing an attractive sense of dynamism to the wall. With endless compositional possibilities, the Plain bookcase is a mini work of architecture aiming to separate and contain with total freedom and the lightest of touches.
