Am I ONE or TWO? It doesn´t matter - the two-parts of the door are connected again. Goethe himself would have appreciated this bookshelf....

Five door cassettes and the belonging braces build up to this ancient door and are the foundation for this beautiful shelf. The original colors white and pastel green were preserved in a time consuming way. The surface of the door was smoothened to create a nice feeling for hands and also for eyes.
The solid shelf boards are made out of old floorboards from Berlin. The past owner seemed to have an extraordinary „green phase“.
This surface also was smoothened in time consuming way. By doing so all the prior colors appeared as well as the beautiful texture oft he wood.
