Philippe Nigro designs Stem bookcase starting from the pragmatic analysis of Manerba “know how” and from the idea of linking simple basics: three components – columns, metal crossbeams and shelves. From their combinations an “infinity system” is born. Its structure with columns of unexpectedly abundant sections and the materials (first of all, solid wood) are the main characters of this system, that arises as a microarchitecture: it develops in solid modules or more well-structured systems as the leaves from the Stem. The name comes from this main feature.
Clean, soft and welcoming lines, as it is the office by Manerba, define this system carachterised by endless modularity and also visual solidity which can develop in height and width, to identify professional spaces and to develop ideas. It is perfect for separating, linking, organising, dividing and limiting.
