About

Rare industrial bookcase wall unit designed by Wim Rietveld (1924-1985) son of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld, for Gispen Culemborg in 1954. A very nice modular wall unit that can be built bigger, or can be used as a room divider. The combination of open and closed units make this unit like a painting. With open or closed doors, both beautiful. This unit has rare green doors which are not often seen, combined with red, yellow, grey and blue. A fantastic work of industrial art. This unit is very wanted at the moment because of its nice colors and it is easy to use. The unit is in a good 100% original vintage condition with only some wear which is normal due to age and usage. Can be combined with all furniture easily. Would look great in a kitchen, home or office.
