We are in Cincinnati around 1880, when a historic high-end office furniture factory began production of the first modular bookcases that could be adapted to fit together to form a single bookcase, with the inclusion of modules of different depths and heights. These bookshelves, with glass or wooden fronts are now collectors’ items that Cargo repurposes to accommodate books as well as glasses and tableware. It is made of solid ash wood, the shape is made more essential than that of its ancestors, but just as refined and practical to use.
To compose the bookcase, it is necessary to purchase the top/base set, to which the stackable center modules should be added; it is recommended not to exceed five modules per column. Columns can be simply placed side by side; they do not need to be fixed to the wall.
