Philae is a modular bookshelf system made of cnc aluminium connectors and mdf panels. The structure works by triangulation–involving the use of triangular shapes to ensure stability and resistance to bending moments. The resulting inclination of the vertical panels enables books to safely stand with a 5° angle, avoiding the use of bookends.
The bookshelf is assembled-disassembled in standing position via M5 bolts, the main 16mm panels are free from any machining prior to assembly.
The name Philae stands as a reference to the Egyptian island Philae and its temple complex, and the lander Philae of the Rosetta spacecraft. The bookshelf embodies the correlation between timeless architecture and contemporary technologies.
