Let knowledge grow, let life be enriched. In other words let Rek bookcase grow with your book collection. Reinier de Jong introduces REK, a bookcase that can provide us as much space as we need. With a marvelous design, REK never looks empty no matter the number or the size of the books you have. Is it a miracle? No, it is Reinier de Jong.
REK is a bookcase that grows with your book collection. The more books, the bigger the bookcase. The zigzag shaped, 6cm thick parts slide in and out providing as much space as needed. Regardless of the quantity of books REK will always be full. Also with the different spaces that appear you can arrange your books according to their size. With the required precision, REK contains a very high level of craftsmanship. The outside of REK is finished with white high gloss laminate. The inside is finished with another type of laminate, in this case warm grey satin. Clients can choose other types of laminate or wood veneer on demand.
