Rek bookcase junior

Reinier de Jong designs for his son a bookcase composed by five parts, you can slide in or out, that can grow with the child’s book collection.

“Despite the iPad and its countless toddler apps, my two-year-old son is very fond of his little books.
Of course they were left all over the place and the box which contained the books was regularly turned upside down. So I decided it was time for his own shelves. Of course I didn't need to think for too long about a children's bookcase. For my son's second birthday I made Rek bookcase junior, a scaled-down version of Rek bookcase.” explains Reinier de Jong.

Like the original Rek the five parts can be pushed in or pulled out to position them according to the space you need. It can grow with the children’s book collection.

Rek junior is entirely made of poplar plywood. Poplar is not only a lightweight material but very eco-friendly (it grows quickly and is harvested from responsibly managed forests in Europe) and of course 100% biodegradable. The wood is finished with an organic linseed oil wax.
