or Call to Order

The Kast Twee book­shelf is part of a range of sculp­tural book­cases designed by Hans de Pels­macker in 2002. Its clever form func­tions like a pillar within a space where the books become visible only if the user is actu­ally viewing the book­shelf from one of the sides – from the front, Kast Twee appears simply as an enig­matic free­stand­ing rectilinear form.

Kast Twee is composed of 1/16” thick sheet aluminum; the form’s perime­ter walls are 1” thick. Kast’s recti­lin­ear pillar form features 5 concealed shelves oriented on the left or right side of the piece that will easily accom­mo­date up to 20 stand­ing ring binders. The pillar’s under­side features discreet adjustable glides that can easily be leveled.

The Kast Twee book­shelf is avail­able in a white powder-coated finish. Its concealed shelves can be spec­i­fied as accessed from either the left or right side when facing the piece.
