Lotto No. 79


Prototype of a “Pattern” shelf structure, designed by Alfredo Häberli


in 2006, for Quodes, Netherlands, white and black MDF, black coated fronts, laminated, 200 x 200 cm, depth 40 cm. (DRAX)

Prototype for the later series production, which used different materials and was only produced on order, with the back wall made of an aluminium composite. As had originally been intended by Häberli, the prototype was solely made of MDF boards.

With a certificate. Chosen as “Best Shelving” by the Wallpaper Magazine in 2007.

Provenance:
manufacturer’s property

“I love books very much: their weight, smell, and haptics. They are a source of inspiration and relaxation, and I love to be surrounded by them. You could say that I am a book maniac. The idea of ‘Pattern’ is to create a non-horizontal shelf. One that will help to keep thin books or magazines in an upright position. In my search for a geometrical figure to repeat, I found an irregular pentagon which, when one is added to the other, creates a pattern and can be used several sizes. Meanwhile there is a horizontal surface which allows for the arranging of objects on it. Showing the pattern of ‘Pattern’ also in the back, it can be used as a room divider.” (Alfredo Häberli)

Alfredo Häberli chose basic geometric shapes and piled them one on top of the other to create interesting patterns. Both the variation and the contours give the bookcase a fascinating visual shape. “Pattern” bookcases are furniture sculptures, suitable for storing books and exhibiting objects
