Graduate bookcase design by Jean Nouvel for Molteni&C is ceiling-mounted or wall-mounted supporting shelf, to which are attached metal uprights with graduated notches placed at different heights.
The shelves are in MDF covered with anodised sheet aluminium 1 mm thick with Birch plywood edge. Tie rods are in stainless steel. A chemical resin wall-fixing kit is included for supporting shelf and supplied for bookcase installation. This fixing adapts very well to perforated and solid walls [in different materials brick, concrete, stone). Minimum required wall thickness 10 cm (4”).
The Graduate Bookcase is certified to UNI EN 1727/99 “FURNITURE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS” standards. The French designer Jean Nouvel designed a brilliant structure resolved in a single shelf anchored to the wall or to the ceiling. Slender steel braces support the shelves that seem to float in the space thanks to invisible support mechanisms. Elegant, transparent , light. You can combine many shelves [100 cm each] and obtain your own Graduate.
