Kastella, a growing Montreal-based manufacturer and distributor of premium hardwood furniture, is thrilled to announce the launch of its latest bookshelf collection; S305.
The S305 is constructed of solid wood frames and Fenix shelves, a highly resistant acrylic resin. The asymmetrical design was inspired by skeleton construction, a building technique whereby vertical columns and horizontal beams are assembled and attached to form a frame. In the design of the S305, individual frames are held together with Fenix panels.
The shelves are notched to fit around the vertical wood components creating a fully integrated aesthetic. The verticals of the S305 extend past the top shelf helping create a strong sense of lightness.
Jason Burhop, founder of Kastella, designed the collection in order to satisfy a growing demand for customizable display units. The functionality of the Fenix surface combined with the warmth of solid wood allows for seamless integration in a number of decors. The S305 is available in solid walnut or white oak with matte black, white Fenix or wood shelves.
Kastella was established in 2001 by founding president Jason Burhop. The company began as a small workshop specializing in custom cabinetry. In 2003, Jason opened a retail space on Boulevard St. Laurent in, where he launched his first collection of solid wood, contemporary furniture. Today the two sides of the business, Kastella Mobilier and Kastella Atelier are firmly established in Montreal.
