The Jack book­case is the result of the first collab­o­ra­tion between B&B Italia and Michael Anas­tas­si­ades. Known for his skills in working with light, the Cypriot designer has designed a modular book­case system with a strik­ing degree of tech­no­log­i­cal perfec­tion. In its search for the creation of an inno­v­a­tive language, this design chal­lenge revis­its and modern­izes a design classic, the 1950’s room center book­case, trans­form­ing it into a compli­ment with a clean, essen­tial yet archi­tec­tural struc­ture. The genius of the piece lies in conceal­ing the engi­neered supports, includ­ing those holding up the lami­nated shelves, inside the verti­cal elements with a rounded section made of extruded aluminum and inte­grated by an exclu­sive, totally-invis­i­ble, floor-ceiling tele­scopic adjustment system. 

The system is avail­able in 14 heights, ranging from 86 – 1/2″ to 127 – 1/2″ and taking in all measure­ments in-between, while the shelves are in two lengths, 29 – 1/2″ and 35 – 1/2″ both 12″ deep. Two are the finishes provided for the verti­cal elements and shelves for single-color solu­tions, chalk white and black, both matte.
