With a reduced, innovative yet ultimately playful design the Buchstabler is a very typical piece of Nils Holger Moormann furniture. Doing what its name implies Buchstabler stacks over several levels thus allowing for a free-standing, almost sculptural storage system that not only takes up a minimum of space but uses a minimum of materials. Turning 360 degrees to allow trouble free access, each level of the Buchstabler by Tom Fischer has space for around 25 books - or DVDS - and should you require more space can be simply extended up to a total of seven levels, circa 1,74m. The cast concrete base allows for stability and security.
The Moormann bookcase Buchstabler was designed by Tom Fischer. Following completion of his studies at the Nürnberg Kunstakademie Tom Fischer established his own design studio in Nürnberg. Tom Fisher developed Buchstabler in 2004 and two years later the complimentary Musikstapler. In addition Tom Fischer has developed numerous projects, ranging from the folding screen Cocoon to Slieper, and aid for office naps. In 2008 Tom Fischer was awarded an iF Product Design Award for his 361 tower shelving system.
As with all Nils Holger Moormann furniture the Buchstabler by Tom Fischer is produced in and around Aschau im Chiemgau. Moormann work closely with small and medium sized trades in a 30 kilometre radius from Aschau thus ensuring a high standard of quality and control. The shelves and side elements of the Buchstabler are crafted from FU birch plywood, a high value, industrially produced, film coated multi-layer panel and are available in white, black or red. As with all Moormann products the birch for Buchstabler is sourced exclusively from European FSC-certified woodlands. The base is formed from cast concrete. Being a classic Moormann product Buchstabler makes innovative use of glueless joints, thus not only raising the products environmental profile but also the ease with which it can be recycled.
The Buchstabler by Tom Fischer is produced by Moormann. Established in the 1980s by Nils Holger Moormann as a platform for products which appealed to his own particular taste, the company has from its earliest days placed a focus on young, unbeknown designers. And Nils Holger Moormann's own, idiosyncratic, creations. Over the decades the Moormann brand has developed into a collection of products characterised by a simple, logical concept combined with a smattering of well-placed humour. Or simple cheek. In addition Moormann's production is underscored by a firmly held commitment to maintaining ecological standards, including a focus on untreated natural materials and glue less joints and connections. Today Moormann employ some 20 staff at their base in Aschau im Chiemgau, Bavaria, who, in cooperation with a roster of international designers develop new projects and further develop existing Moormann products. In addition Moormann own and operate the Berge Guest house in Aschau; a lovingly, and environmentally sensitively, restored former bakery in which guest can not only sleep in Siebenschläfer bed from Christoffer Martens but also enjoy further products from the enviable Moormann collection. And a lot of peace and quiet.
