Totem Angular Bookcase Cubes are made for displaying your life full of treasures. Nicolette de Waart’s Totem Angular Bookcase Cubes create responsive spaces to house the books, ornaments, pictures and memories of your life. The modular design and angled edge, pulling the cube forward into an irregular form, create intriguing possibilities for storage and display. The units – floorstanding, wall-mounted or in room divider form – can stack up or across, in symmetrical rank, or asymmetrical patterns. London-based Nicolette says: “Bookcases have evolved from simply housing books, becoming also a reflection of who people are, and the special things they have in their lives. I wanted to combine the function of storing books with the idea of a cabinet of curiosities. The shape allows people to mix and match the unit of display, putting their own creativity into the process’. The price displayed is for one cube.
