Sibast Furniture worked with danish artist Kasper Eistrup in developing the XLIBRIS series.
It consists of two pieces of multifunctional furniture: a wall-mounted, self-supporting shelf and a matching table, both with an ultra-slim silhouette and a light style, reminiscent of Japanese origami art. The design uses 45 degree lines from the side of the shelf to the front edge of the board.
Part of XLIBRIS´ underlying idea is that both pieces of furniture can function in their own right or change function and style by combining multiple shelves, horizontally or vertically, for instance. This makes them well suited for a wide variety of interiors - at home or in the office.
Kasper Eistrup’s artistic approach to design and his sense of detail are also evident in XLIBRIS, furnished with an exclusive brass emblem mounted on the side of both the shelf and the wall-mounted desk. The emblem is made up of four hearts joined into a four-leaf clover. The hearts symbolise a predilection for necessity, functionality, the material and the craft – all of which were involved in the development of XLIBRIS.
Despite its apparent simplicity, XLIBRIS is brimming with small artisanal and functional details. These include a concealed cable outlet in the wall-mounted desk, enabling the elegant and discreet connection of a laptop, smartphone or lamp to the power grid. Both the shelf and the wall-mounted desk are assembled without visible screws, emphasising the impression of XLIBRIS as two integrated pieces of furniture that seemingly grow out of the wall.
XLIBRIS is made of oak and comes in an oiled or smoked finish.
