Formal lightweight, graphic sign, simple design, harmonious aesthetics, essentiality are the hallmarks of Super_Position bookcase family, designed by Jean Nouvel Design.

“Overlapped lines are a tribute to the lightness of horizontality. Uninterrupted vertical lines cross the shelves, which extend like small diving boards into the void.
Objects, vases and sculptures can express their differences of scale in empty spaces, in the niches in the middle or on the ends of the overlapped lines.” Jean Nouvel

Super_Position is available in a monochromatic version, two-tone or two-material version.
