“This bookcase is a tribute to my Parisian grandfather”, explains the designer, Fabrice Berrux. “There was one room in his apartment which fascinated me more than any other. It was the room he occupied every evening until late at night: his office, or better, his room of wonders, his ‘cabinet de curiosité’. A place for thinking, for creating, for recalling memories, packed with books, paintings, masks, sculptures, and a thousand other ‘essential’ objects”. Fifteen years later, these memories have become a bookcase devised like a modular architectural feature.

Cabinet de Curiosité consists of six different modules, which can be mixed and matched freely to achieve the desired configuration. Every module consists of a façade and a variable number of windows and niches intended to house, organise and highlight books, ornaments and all sorts of objects.
