Cheft – a graphic bookcase by Iranian designer Maryam Pousti

On the occasion of the Paris Design Week 2015, La Galerie Joseph will be hosting, in the framework of the Design Experience exhibition, a selection of international creators. The opportunity for us to discover the remarkable work of Iranian designer Maryam Pousti – Studio Pousti – through her flagship piece, the very graphic Chest bookcase.

A creation inspired by Persian architectural models

As part of a larger collection including a table, a stool and an armchair developed following the same concept, the Cheft bookcase strikes us with its sleek lines and graphics inspired by the Persian architectural models seen in traditional houses. Models that assumed a double function, both structural and ornamental.

A simple assembly in just a few minutes

Composed of twelve elements, its uniqueness lies notably in its particularly easy assembly, which takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require any nails, glue or screws.

The secret: the filling slots carefully drawn and digitally cut, which allows the different pieces to lock once they are fitted together, creating a true self-supporting structure. Mounted flat, the Cheft bookcase then stands up on its own legs. And no need to attach it to a wall… which also enables it to assume a separating role.

An ease of assembly, which is also advantageous regarding the delivery, since all the pieces can be stored flat.

A particularly accomplished design, now produced in Italy and available for delivery worldwide. From Yooko.
