Conceived as an “objet minime” minimalist object, the PERSONA bookcase is reduced to the bare essentials. The intelligent and space-saving shelf is not designed horizontally, but vertically. The books are place upright and become a living part of the furniture. The design thus spans an arc between the inadequacy of a safe and the airiness of a film backdrop for a Wild West city. PERSONA consists of powder-coated sheet steel and wood fibre boards components, it is remarkably light and space-saving.
Martin Breuer-Bono from Graz has worked as a designer since 2000 and has received top awards for his work including the State Prize for Design, the Red Dot Design Award and the Re: Design [Network] work Award, among others. The customers of this designer include companies such as Salewa, Koziol, Walch Fenstersysteme, Müller Ofenbau and Gaulhofer, for whom window systems for everything from bicycle trailers to egg cups were designed.
