Two generously sized bookcases in swamp oak

december 2015Two generously sized bookcases in swamp oak

Atelier Bernard Pictet has made glass tops for two generously sized bookcases in swamp oak, by Ludwig & Dominique cabinetmakers

Both are unique pieces.

These two bookcases with matching dimensions are made from swamp oak, a fossilised oak that spent more than three thousand years immersed in peat bog, and which has a natural bronze-brown colour. They were imagined by Ludwig & Dominique cabinetmakers with a geometric inlay that brings out the original qualities of this wood.

The thick glass tops, created by Atelier Bernard Pictet, are heavily engraved with a canvas design, patinated then finished with gold leaf in shades that beautifully match the warm glow of the wood.

The front of one of the bookcases comprises doors on each side of central shelves. In contrast, the shelves of the second bookcase frame a central cupboard with drawers in natural oak.

Design and manufacture: Atelier Ludwig & Dominique
Glass tops, patinated gold, unique pieces: Atelier Bernard Pictet
Dimensions of each bookcase:
Length: 365 cm
Depth: 30 cm
Height: 86.4 cm
