Doppler Bookcase

Doppler is a modern interpretation of the ubiquitous bookcase whose distinctive design makes it more akin to small-scale architecture than another piece of furniture. The varying spacing between the vertical supports reference the Doppler Effect, a scientific principle regarding sound and light waves. The outcome is a bookcase with an almost dynamic aesthetic, that breaks free of the monotony of standard storage solutions. Whether placed in the living room, home office, hallway or study, Doppler is a real statement piece that will make your space the envy of all.

Doppler is available in its standard size format, or can be customised to fit your space (at cost). Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

The Doppler Effect describes the change in frequency of a wave (sound or light) as the source and observer move relative to each other. Waves emitted by an object traveling toward an observer get compressed, prompting a higher frequency, as the source approaches the observer. Likewise, waves emitted by a source traveling away from an observer get stretched out. The effect causes the sudden change in pitch noticeable in a passing siren, as well as the red shift seen by astronomers.

The Doppler bookcase takes inspiration from the above principle by placing its vertical supports at varying distances from each other, referencing a wave source speeding up and then slowing down relative to an observer.
