Baleri Italia Mac Gee - The Mac Gee shelving system represents a successful collaboration between Philippe Stark and Baleri Italia. A good, but simple idea, beautifully executed. Modular bookshelves in steel sheet with epoxy finish in matt black (N), white (W), and metallic silver (AG). A central upright supports five shelves of decreasing depth.
Mac Gee is a name from Ubik, the novel by Philip K.Dick that fascinated Starck. A collapsible object, a bookshelf that becomes an inclined upright, with an airplane’s wing profile, to be leaned casually against the wall. The shelves are set into the upright and project on both sides, thus softening the shape into more familiar tones, almost to look like a ladder, an “objet trouvé” modified into a bookshelf. Modular bookshelves in steel sheet with epoxy finish in matt black, white and metallic silver. A central upright supports five shelves of decreasing depth. It is designed to create an extended bookcase by lining up two or more units.
