LOOK WHO'S TALKING ABOUT KÖLLEN

 

KÖLLEN: THE INTERACTIVE BOOKSHELF COLLECTION

The interactive bookshelf collection is a project that emerges from the idea of Köllen Bookshelf, an innovative piece of furniture that can be modified to the user’s will. Köllen Collection offers a set of decorative products inspired in the nordic style and in the same vein as the bookshelf itself.

Köllen Bookshelf is a modular and interactive bookshelf which structure can be adapted to the user’s need. Its structure is created from a modular sistem formed by the repetition of adaptable pieces which have an independent working in matter of position, thus offering a multifunctional and decorative bookshelf which form changes depending on the objects placed.

KÖLLEN COMPLETE 

Köllen complete is composed by six 1 metre lengthed units, disposed in groups of 2 joined units.

KÖLLEN CUSTOMIZABLE 

Customize your Köllen Bookshelf! With Köllen Customizable you can choose its’ finishing colour so that you can adapt it to the interior you want to put it in. We give you some inspiration examples combined with birch wood:

STYLE

The piece features the typical traits of the Nordic style, either in matter of material or the shapes used. The former is essentially natural and uses light tones with shades of white. Concerning the shapes, the order dominates with the regularity of strips, partly broken by the sinuous border. This latter shape represents the mountains, in a nod to the piece's originary region, which is repeated in its very name, Köllen, which is Swede for Alps.

FUNCTIONING

The two possible positioning of the strips give the bookshelf a sensation of dynamism. First of all, the vertical positioning allows for the rest of relatively high objects, for the space occupied by the strips is drastically reduced. Furthermore, the strips can be used as hangers while in this positioning. On the other hand, the horizontal disposition is meant for the traditional usage of a bookshelf. The independent working of the strips makes any combination of positioning possible at any moment.

MATERIALS

The main material of the bookshelf structure is natural birch plywood originating from Finland of 20 mm in thickness, lacquer in white and with a finishing touch of matt varnish paint. The subjection of the various elements between them is accomplished by using ironwork of stainless steel.

WHICH IS THE DESTINATION OF THE PLEDGES?

 

 

 

We are a group of four design students in third year of the degree in Industrial Product and Graphic Design in EINA, Universitary Centre of Art and Design of Barcelona: Adrian Soldado Cid, Paula Terra Bosch, Oriol Campillo Mestres and Núria Jané Ballarín.

Our way of design is based on simplicity and functionality, along with dynamism and care on the finishing touches Thus, a hybrid between the pragmatism of the industrial product and the aesthetics of the sculpture is reached. In addition, it also turns to the warmth of the materials and the combination between organic forms and order and regularity.

 

Köllen Bookshelf emerged from a college project to take part in the 2016 Nude Congress from the 1st through the 5th of February in the Feria Hábitat in Valencia.

The final prototype was well-received in the event, hence it was projected for industrial production and further commercialization. At this point, we launched a crowdfunding campaign through Verkami in order to assume the project’s cost.

Having doubled our target by the end of the campaign, we started in the production of a first series of 30 bookshelves. At the same time, we engaged in Creamedia, a program powered by Barcelona Activa, which endorses all kinds of developing projects and/or companies.

We are currently also seeking financial endorsement in order to produce a second series and keep on with the project while creating our very own enterprise. The money received would also help in the development of a new project that would be presented in the next Nude Congress in Valencia, on February 2017.
