A nice Roman wall (Opus incertum) wasn’t measured with a ruler, so that everything looked very ordinary and neat – it should be robust and resistant. And since the Roman weren’t only known for brick buildings, an irregular facade was created.
When it comes to produce a modern book shelf, manufacturers look after the right angle and clear edges very squeamishly. But this isn't the only practicable way, the book shelf Opus Incertum by Casamania proves it.
The single sheds create an irregular structure in which unconventionally books and other things can be stored.
Made out of foamed polyethylene, it fulfils Roman demands on robustness. It can be stacked and placed next to each other, just as you like it. And as room divider, or explained as Romans would: "Room-Limes“, Opus Incertum adds its part to a modern, stylish house.
The young American, in Italy working designer Sean Yoo is responsible for the Roman wall – truthfully multicultural!
Opus Incertum is also available in further colours.
