In collaboration with the Albers Foundation, AMEICO is very pleased to introduce the first known commercial reproduction since the 1920s of Josef Albers’s bookshelf, designed when he was still at the Bauhaus for Walter Gropius’s architectural practice. The original piece, possibly used as a magazine display is long ago lost. The only specifications on the piece survive in a copy of a 1925 Bauhaus catalog: Albers used a perfect square, shelves exactly one fourth as wide as the total span, and wove dark horizontal wood through light verticals. The proportioning creates equal, but visually interesting sections through utmost simplicity, and the result is tangible perfection.
