Designed by Gerald Summers (1899-1967)
Made by 'Makers of Simple Furniture' (1932-1940)
In 1934 Summers achieved a ‘Mondrian’ like perfection with his design for these L-shaped book shelves. The five units can be placed in a huge variety of combinations and with their asymmetric internal dimensions and exciting external silhouette they are quite unlike any other modular design before or since; yet as always they conform to Summers’ interdependence of form and function.
