Portable Polished Brass and Mahogany Cyclopedia Bookshelf with Wheels

$3,700per item


The design for Cyclopedia stems from the high wheel bicycles of the 1870s. Unlike most bookshelves, Cyclopedia differentiates itself through its portable structure. This unique piece is a library and a display shelf that can be wheeled and positioned in various locations around the space to meet the owners preference and purpose. Composed of polished brass and a rich mahogany, this handcrafted piece is sure to bring an eclectic vibe to any surface it leans against.

About the Maker


Merve Kahraman studied Interior Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design (Milan/Italy) before moving to London to study MA Product Design in Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (London/UK). During this time she has worked in several architecture and design studios in London, New York and Istanbul. Her decision to specialize in industrial design stems from her desire to include furniture and products as an integral part of her designs for spaces. In her works, she explores the relationship between her products and their users. Developing a personal bond either through the means of reoccurring cycles or lending the object as an extension to ones personality. Sustainable design, that redefines character, executed through masterful craftsmanship is what the designer is constantly striving for. In all her products she is trying to create pieces of fine craftsmanship by using honest, natural, finest materials combined with artistry and engineering skills. All Merve Kahraman products' manufacturing is made in Turkey by local craftsman who have been practicing their fields for years. Recently, she is working on her own industrial design and interior design projects between New York and Istanbul.
