Bookcase Hemingway

design: Massimo Castagna
2020 collection


The bookcase Hemingway with its refined and strong shapes was created by architect Massimo Castagna. 

It is a bookcase with frame in solid wood, made of uprights and beams, wall or ceiling fixing. 

The uprights are made lighter by frontal and lateral fissures and are characterised by inserts in polished metal. The horizontal beams physically and visually define the shape and rhythm of this bookcase. The structure supports the shelves and storage units available in different functions and dimensions. 

The bookcase Hemingway can accommodate horizontal storage units with flap opening and vertical units with hinge door, made of glass and wood. It also has a wooden desk top. 

The glass shelves and their peculiar side slots, are fixed to the uprights through interlocking pins, each shelf is provided with fall arrest security system.  Vertical uprights and horizontal beams in solid wood complete the structure and are available in Siberian Ash or Eucalipto, with inserts and supports in polished chrome or gold. The shelves are in extra clear or smoked glass and the feet are height adjustable.

Storage units with flap opening and hinge door with structure in smoked glass and wooden door. Wooden desk top in 100cm, can be fitted out with cable entry.
