The work of Argentinean architect Alejandro Sticotti has a modernist foundation: He takes the constructive and rational influences of the Bauhaus and Scandinavian modern, adds American Shaker and 1950s design elements, and merges them with the materials and sensibility of his native culture. His Shelving Units (2008) are made from warm, unique South American hardwoods; the vertical and horizontal mounts are crafted of solid lapacho, and the shelves are made with cerejeira veneer. The Optional Desk Shelf is made from light cerejeira wood. It transforms any Sticotti Shelving Unit into a compact workspace.
Cerejeira wood veneer over MDF (shelves) with a beeswax finish; lapacho wood (vertical and horizontal mounts).
