Kast Drie Bookshelf
The Kast Drie bookshelf designed by Hans de Pelsmacker features a clever form that functions as a wide pillar within a space where the books become visible only if the user is actually viewing the bookshelf from either of its sides – from the front, Kast Drie appears simply as an enigmatic freestanding rectilinear form.
Kast Drie is available in two versions – aluminum or solid oak. Either version features thick 1” perimeter walls. Kast Drie’s resulting rectilinear pillar form features 5 concealed shelves on both the left and right sides of the piece that will easily accommodate up to 40 standing ring binders. The pillar’s underside features discreet adjustable glides that can easily be leveled.
The Kast Drie bookshelf is available in aluminum with a white powder-coated finish or in solid European oiled oak.
