The Ren bookcase is a graphical weave of lines. The two lateral uprights, slightly inclined, support the birch plywood shelves, upholstered in saddle-leather with a Canaletto walnut veneer on the sides. The upper crosspiece is fixed to the wall using metal hooks with a natural brass finish. The bookcase comes in a low version with a round multi-purpose tray upholstered in saddle-leather hanging from the upper crosspiece, and in a tall version. They differ from each other in terms of height, width and number of shelves. Both variants can be completed with bookends in brushed steel with a natural brass finish.
Concept and Design
The Ren bookcase enriches the collection of the same name designed by Neri & Hu. The underlying theme continues to be the Chinese “ren” symbol. A graphical weave of lines that exudes intimate elegance. Small, light architectures made up of ingenious suspensions, clever balances, simple interconnections inspired by an oriental concept of spaces and design. And they are produced using fine materials and artisan techniques inextricably linked with the Poltrona Frau tradition.
