Pierre Chapo B17 Bookshelf 226CM (Early Edition)

An instantly recognizable and hard to find piece from Pierre Chapo, this impressive wall hanging bookshelf consists of 4 horizontal solid elm slats that rests under 8 brackets. 

Chapo playfully turned this around and put the brackets on top, fixing the construction with elm wedges. This way the brackets also function as bookends.

One of the first editions, the wood shows a stunning grain and patina.
