A modular bookcase inspired by an iconic artist.

Belgian designer Quentin de Coster has a penchant for creating ultra-minimal designs that have a playful character and also tell a story. The PIETER modern contemporary bookcase prototype follows the same recipe. Inspired by the iconic Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and his abstract artworks with clean patterns, the shelf unit has a totem-like silhouette that draws attention at first sight. Minimal yet imposing, the bookcase has a convenient modular design. Whether used as a single, standalone unit, or a group to create a larger shelving system, PIETER provides the ideal solution to display books and decorative objects in style.

The asymmetric shelves give the design a dynamic look. At the same time, they reference the growth of a plant on a supporting stake. Providing optimal support, the tall plate ensures perfect stability. Beyond the refined aesthetic, the shelving system also features a blend of premium materials. The bead-blasted stainless steel shelves attach to the raw steel or patinated brass plate via subtle screws. Vibrant colors brighten interiors, while the neutral color options complement virtually any decor. Art and design, brought together to create functional and stylish furniture for modern homes.
