Jam Bookcase


Ships in 8-10 weeks


Composed of just three different elements, the Jam bookcase is a cleverly and elegantly executed design. The defining element is a wedge, which allows the book case to be assembled without the use of screws or tools. The shelves are quite simply jammed onto the wedges and then gravity and friction take care of the rest.

As the RSW design trio dived deeper into the ways friction can be used to position and hold in place, they moved on from the flat wedge to a conical shape that can envelope each of the poles. This grew into a search for the perfect way to create a reliable and stable set of shelves and poles. The end result is two identical halves in colored polypropylene that are assembled around the poles, constituting an aesthetic design detail in contrast with the warm oak.

The Jam book case is available in various sizes and can be placed against a wall or used as a room divider. The shelves' softly rounded corners give the unit an inviting and friendly visual expression. With its versatile design, the bookcase works just as well in small apartments as it does in large offices, where its purity and materiality craft a calming and pleasant presence
