Paul Frankl - 'Skyscraper' Bookcase


New Paul Frankl Art Deco Skyscraper style painted lacquered bookcase in black with red edges

It is a testament to Paul Frankl's design versatility and productiveness that new pieces of his work keep turning up, such as this bookcase recently unearthed. This piece is definately up there with his best Skyscraper bookcase designs. The outline is dramatic, emphasised with the bold red lines, looking almost neon against the black. The original was made during Frankl's golden period of his Skyscraper designs. Like his best designs this bookcase offers excellent storage and display space and makes a stunning design statement in any interior.

There is a rule in furniture design - if you can draw it you can make it. We would love to make this for a Frankl enthusiast. Most of Frankl's best work has disappeared into museums and private collections, so offering an accurate reproduction is as close as many of us will get to owning such pieces. What was interesting when doing the CAD drawing was these bookcases look best when using a stronger muted colour, paler colours (as shown below) just lack the strong outline required of such a piece. Made to order, and shipped anywhere.
