Last August Table of Contents began talking with Minneapolis-based design and art studio ROLU about working together on a project to develop an edition of bookends inspired by Issey Miyake. In response ROLU developed Clothing For Books (After Sculpture), an edition of five solid walnut bookends. The simple yet sophisticated form, at a scale much larger than a standard bookend, allows for a lot of variation and play in the way that each piece can be positioned or "worn." TOC is releasing these bookends tomorrow with a reception at their store from 6-9 pm. This collaboration sounds very interesting and is a must-attend event for anyone that's into modern home furnishings. Also available for viewing are TOC's new fall arrivals from the likes of Comme Des Garcons and Jan-Jan Van Essche.
