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, cut aslant with technological harshness. However, the shelves fitted on both sides give the softening image of more familiar tones, a ladder, almost an “object trouvé” modified into a bookshelf.

The staggered shelves in ribbed sheet steel are painted to match the upright and come with demountable bookshelves for assembly on the wall.
