Literis by Eckhard Beger for ArteNemus is a bookshelf
designed to accommodate books with a variety of sizes as
well as magazines and large drawings. The intriguing layout
of the shelves and dividers follows a stair shaped graphic
and ornamental pattern with a central focus. This pattern is
emphasised by the powerful contrast between the light
maple veneer and the black ebony marquetry inlay on the all
the faces of the bookshelf. Literis is conceived in 3 different
widths (160/120/90cm) to allow its installation in rooms of
different sizes. When combining 2 or 3 units of Literis, its
ornamental pattern is emphasised.

Dimensions: W x H x D: 160/120/90 x 200 x 35 cm

Literis has been awarded the artist of the year award at the
