With his Hector project, Vincent Van Duysen makes his debut in the world of upright modular bookcases.
“The Hector bookcase takes its inspiration from the typical modernist libraries and offices which we translated in an elegant, smooth almost gracious but especially domestic language.”
Vincent Van Duysen
The modular bookcase is designed to achieve light and airy compositions, of any length and as tall as you like, thanks to the modular elements of which they are composed, making the most of the features of the upright fixed between the floor and the ceiling.
The various combinations of possible finishes give rise to very different compositions in terms of their visual impact and pleasing shapes.
Solid wooden or extruded aluminium tray-like shelves, with rounded edges on the corners, the bottoms of which can be made of glass or wood, are hooked to the uprights.
