The Molteni & C Ava bookcase is an Italian design double sided bookcase created by Foster & Partners, one of the most innovative architectural and integrated design studios in the world.
Striking and unusual, Ava can be placed against a wall like a normal bookcase, or as it is double sided, it can be positioned in the middle of a room as a useful divider.
Both the shelves and structure have a V-shaped profile showcasing Molteni's use of innovative technological materials. Each shelf is made of plywood panels, reinforced with aluminium, and then folded. Adding a structural composite material profile, which is obtained via extrusion, this process allows for maximum load resistance. Optional LED lighting can be added which is fitted into the shelves.
The outer finish for the shelves and structure is in eucalyptus wood whilst the back panel is a lacquered bronze aluminium sheet with a three-dimensional texture achieved by the use of a laser cutter.
