BARBER & OSGERBY
The "Paris" system (designed in 2008 by Barber & Osgerby for ClassiCon) is like an elegant re-thinking of the classic cinder-block-and-plank shelving found in a million college dorm rooms. They've taken the bulk out of that old standby with open rectangles of powder-coated steel and walnut or lacquered shelves. These supports also allow for more books to go where the blocks would have normally taken up so much space. Another beautiful solution from these masters of playful simplicity.
