Design: Michael Anastassiades (2018)
Jack is the result of the first collaboration between B&B Italia and Michael Anastassiades. Known for his skills in working with light, the Cypriot designer has designed a modular bookcase system with a striking degree of technological perfection. In its search for the creation of an innovative language, this design challenge revisits and modernizes a design classic, the 1950’s room centre bookcase, transforming it into a complement with a clean, essential yet architectural structure. The genius of the piece lies in concealing the engineered supports, including those holding up the laminated shelves, inside the vertical elements with a rounded section made of extruded aluminum and integrated by an exclusive, totally-invisible, floor-ceiling telescopic adjustment system. The system is available in 14 heights, ranging from 86.6in | 220cm to 127.6in | 324cm and taking in all measurements in-between, while the shelves are in two lengths, 29.5in | 75cm and 35.4in | 90cm, both 11.8in | 30cm deep. Two are the finishes provided for the vertical elements and shelves for single-color solutions, chalk white and black, both matte.
