— Fascinated by how spaces transform over time, Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei invented the word Afteroom to name their Stockholm studio. "We simply want to create things people won't get rid of," says Chen-Yen. In creating the Story Bookcase (2017), they brought a new twist to Sapien-style vertical book storage by allowing the user to position the shelves facing forward or to the side.
By holding texts horizontally in a vertical stack, Story holds dozens of books in a very compact footprint. "It was not an easy task, though it appears really simple," says Hung-Ming. "We hope people see it as a quiet, functional sculpture." All-metal construction and a heavy weighted base provide strength and stability. Made in Taiwan. Create a forest of book trees. Mix and match the two heights to create a library unlike any other. Weight limit per shelf: 3.2 kg. Ships in two boxes for easy handling. Simple assembly required. Wall anchoring hardware and safety strap included.
