Doppler Bookcase

£11,000.00 GBP
inkl. MwSt. zzgl. Versandkosten

Introducing Doppler, a modern and sophisticated interpretation of the classic bookcase. Referencing the Doppler Effect, a scientific principle relating to sound and light waves, the piece has its vertical supports at increasingly narrower and then wider spacing. The result is a bookcase with a surprising aesthetic, liberating itself from the predictable monotony of traditional storage solutions.

Doppler is made from real wood veneered plywood to give a strong and stable frame that will give a lifetime of service.

Key Features:

  • Where Design, Science and Architecture Collide: Pushing the boundaries of conventional design, Doppler’s considerable size and distinctive appearance render it more akin to small-scale architecture than just another piece of furniture.
  • Statement Making Design: Telling a story of movement, the Doppler Bookcase asserts itself as a definitive statement piece, and a sure conversation starter. Its mere presence creates a focal point that radiates style and sophistication to elevate any space.
  • Robust Frame: Doppler is constructed from real wood veneered plywood, allowing thinner vertical supports and shelves without compromising strength, stability and durability.
  • Everyday Practicality: Doppler’s expansive size provides ample storage for books, decorations and cherished items. Whether in the living room, home office, hallway or study, Doppler is sure to provide a smart and effective solution for your home organisation needs.
  • Versatile and Customisable: Doppler is suitable for a range of environments, including residential, hospitality, and commercial spaces. Its size can be customised to fit most spaces to ensure a seamless, fitted installation.
  • Expert Craftsmanship: Proudly made in the UK, the Doppler Bookcase embodies the essence of British craftsmanship. Each piece reflects meticulous attention to detail and quality.

Doppler is available in its standard size format, or can be customised to fit your space (at cost). Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

- The Doppler Effect describes the change in frequency of a (sound or light) wave as the source and observer move relative to each other. Waves emitted by an object travelling toward an observer get compressed, creating a higher frequency, as the source approaches the observer. Likewise, waves emitted by a source traveling away from an observer get stretched out, creating a lower frequency. The effect causes the sudden change in pitch noticeable in a passing siren, as well as the red shift seen by astronomers.

- The Doppler Bookcase takes inspiration from the above principle by placing its vertical supports at varying distances from each other, referencing a wave source speeding up and then slowing down relative to an observer.
