Jack is the result of the first collaboration between B&B Italia and Michael Anastassiades. Known for his skills in working with light, the Cypriot designer has designed a modular bookcase system with a striking degree of technological perfection. In its search for the creation of an innovative language, this design challenge revisits and modernizes a design classic, the 1950’s room center bookcase, transforming it into a compliment with a clean, essential yet architectural structure.
The genius of the piece lies in concealing the engineered supports, including those holding up the laminated shelves, inside the vertical elements with a rounded section made of extruded aluminum and integrated by an exclusive, totally-invisible, floor-ceiling telescopic adjustment system.
The system is available in 14 heights, ranging from 219 to 323 cm, and taking in all measurements in-between, while the shelves are in two lengths, 75 and 90 cm, both 30 cm deep. Two are the finishes provided for the vertical elements and shelves for single-color solutions, chalk white and black, both matt.
After last year’s great success, the Jack bookcase system returns with a range expanded by new structures, finishes, and modules. In addition to the clean vertical floor to ceiling upright, Anastassiades has designed a new rod to be fixed to the wall, making Jack suitable for all those spaces that cannot provide the vertical anchorage for a bookcase.
Together with the new structure (which can reach up to 330 cm in height), the growing family of elements has been combined to provide new, deeper shelves, storage elements such as drawers and flap doors. The precise technical solutions for the flap doors include an interesting cable-rolling system and a single elegant hinge that crosses the door along its length.
All the elements are available in black and white, to which Canaletto walnut is added as an option for the tops and storage units and four oak finishes - light, grey, black and smoked.
