Frames 2.5 Bookcase

The inspiration of the bookcase is the shape of a simple rectangular frame. FRAMES, designed by the Dutch designer Gerard de Hoop, is a solid rack in steel on which you can display all your beautiful items. The open frames create sleek, minimalistic lines. You can also use FRAMES as a room divider. That way, you create islands in your living room without compromising on openness. This makes the room playful and exciting.

“The challenge was to make a functional, exciting and subtle piece furniture out of one rectangular shape.” – Gerard de Hoop

10 metal frames that are sized to fit within each other, come apart to create a freestanding shelf storage or room divider. The components of Frames 2.5, have different widths and lengths, each with an open center, that when assembled together, form a grid to hold your books and stuff. The open frames deliver an exciting game of lines. Depending on where you’re standing some of the shelves appear to float.

A minimal approach to your household shelf where all the components fit into a single rectangular plank structure. When de frames are assembled the shelf has an inconsistent composition creating an interesting play of graphical lines. The metal frames are welded and powder coated. The frames are assembled with small black bolts. A invisible metal part is used for stability.

Gerard de Hoop:

Grid, made up of 10 metal frames that as a free standing bookcase or as a room divider can be used. The ‘boards’ have different widths and are open in the middle. This makes them suitable for some books, but also something can be hung in. A metal container (accessory), can serve as a planter or to put other stuff in.
