Albers Bookcase and Magazine Stand

Albers Bookcase and Magazine Stand is made with solid white oak boards that are fumed (darkened naturally through an oxidization process) for the horizontal elements, and waxed and hand-polished for the light vertical elements.

Invisible sliding dovetail joints cleverly joins the elements to look as if they intersect effortlessly one into the other. Built to order by a Connecticut master woodworker using locally-sourced white oak.

Josef Albers designed this bookshelf as a magazine stand for his Bauhaus fellow faculty member Walter Gropius in 1923. As part of a set of furniture for the waiting room of Gropius's new architectural firm, this piece was conceived to help convey modern Bauhaus ideals.

Total Size: 55" x 55" x 13.8" inches
