dbd Studio has recently completed a custom bookshelf specifically designed and built for a condo in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington DC. The owner had a severe lack of storage for household items, as well as no display options for objects collected from his worldwide travels.
The large bookshelf serves as both an art piece in itself and a functional storage/display system. An organic curving surface was created in Rhino that stretched from floor to ceiling and overhead, terminating at the existing bulkhead. 17 sheets of 3/4″ birch plywood were then CNC milled to notch together and form the undulating, gridded mass.
Special attention was paid to avoid interfering with the recessed lights, sprinkler heads, air vents and fire alarms along the hallway ceiling.
The vertical plywood components were spaced to avoid them or notched to allow them to function. dbd Studio (Design/Build/Develop) is located in the Washington, DC area specializing in restaurant/retail and custom furniture.
