Mac Gee

A name derived from “Ubik” a novel by Philip K. Dick which captured Starck’s imagination.
The bookshelf is simplified so that it becomes an inclined upright to be readily leaned against the wall.
The upright has a blade-like profile or that of the wing of an airplane; the ends of its V-section are both cut aslant with technological harshness but the shelves are fitted and project on both sides, thus softening the image to more familiar tones: a ladder, almost an “object trouvé” modified into a bookshelf.
Demountable bookshelves for assembly on the wall. Central upright in sheet steel painted with epoxy powders. The staggered shelves in ribbed sheet steel are painted to match the upright.

Materials
steel sheet with epoxy fiish in mat black, white and metallic silver.
A central upright supports fie shelves of decreasing depth.

Dimensions
990mm w x 460mm d x 2350mm h
