'Xiangsheng II Shelving Unit', a Modular Bronze Bookcase and Room Divider

$72,108.09

About the Item

‘XiangSheng II Shelving Unit‘ is an elegant collectible design work that combines champagne colored brushed bronze surfaces, and oxidized bronze with an intense brown patina. This limited edition bookcase includes four individual units. Units can be added to form a larger room divider or shelving unit. ‘XiangSheng II Shelving Unit‘ is part of the ‘XiangSheng’ furniture collection by much acclaimed duo Studio MVW, founded in Shangaï by Chinese designer Xu Ming and French architect Virginie Moriette. Known for its sculptural, architectural forms and ability to subtly connect contemporary Western and Eastern aesthetics, Studio MVW has won numerous awards in Asia and Europe, including the Architectural Digest AD 100 Design Talents Award four times in a row (2019, 2017, 2015 and 2013); Wallpaper* Design Award (2014); ELLE Decoration International Design Award (2013). At the heart of ‘XiangSheng’ is an exploration into how solid and void can join in perfect unity to become functional, useful, and inspirational. In the West, a solid object is seen in terms of material and form and admired for that. In the East, the concept of emptiness is meaningful, and can be traced back to Taoist philosophy to represent the spirit void of thought, a quiet, patient place from which the subliminal can flow. As such, their design sensitively crosses cultures, connecting Eastern and Western aesthetics and practices in a collection which has earned mutual appeal. ‘XiangSheng II Shelving Unit‘ is produced in a limited edition of 8 pieces + 4 artist proofs.

Customization Options

Customers can choose for the oxidized parts an Etruscan green patina (XiangSheng I) instead of the intense brown patina (XiangSheng II).
