Cellulose Bookcase

pine, black walnut, compressed wood fiber board, stain

This shelving system was created to explore the cellular alignment found in wood and plants. The shelving and sides are made of yellow pine, black walnut, and compressed wood fiber board. All of these components represent the cellular walls of of wood.

The voids, typically filled with water at a cellular level are replaced at a macro level with man-made refined cellulose — books. The pine shelf ends are oriented to expose the end grain thereby developing a dialogue between it and the highly magnified graphical representation of offsetting and volumetric variability that is present but imperceptible in the yellow pine to the naked eye.
