or Call to Order

The Kast Een book­shelf is part of a range of sculp­tural book­cases designed by Hans de Pels­macker in 2002. Its clever form func­tions as a pillar within a space where books become visible only if the user actu­ally stands in between the book­case and the wall. 

Kast Een is composed of 1/16” thick sheet aluminum; the form’s perime­ter walls are 1” thick. Kast’s recti­lin­ear pillar form features 6 concealed shelves that will easily accom­mo­date up to 30 stand­ing ring binders. A concealed mount­ing bracket allows the cantilevered top to be screwed firmly to the wall. The pillar’s under­side features discreet adjustable glides that can easily be leveled. The Kast Een book­shelf is avail­able in a choice of two powder-coated finishes – pure orange and signal white. Other custom finish options are available.
