Books are so important to interiors, they are a connection to the past, reminders from different parts of our lives, they give us a sense of familiarity and security. When you unpack your books into a new home you have an immediate sense of place, they give a stark modern room a sense of history, they give a room character and substance.
Books are tactile, it is comforting to be surrounded by paper as a natural material, the colours of books and their graphic quality is an angle we all enjoy.
We took these principles as our starting point when designing our bookends, we wanted our bookends to have a connection to the books in the same special way books have a connection to our customers.
The bookends are laser cut from steel and then folded, this makes them extremely functional, the ‘peel’ is formed by hand giving the bookends a fragility that resembles paper. The bookends are painted with a matt paint which also echo’s the quality of paper. We chose a palette that is sympathetic to the numerous colours and graphics of the books we adore. The bookends are unique and clever but they are also understated and compliment our prized collection.
