Concave Bookcase

Name of Designer:

Simon Pengelly
DGM Number


Date of Award


Manufacturers’ Name



This inspired piece by Simon Pengelly is a response to our need for bookcases to house a plethora of items that differ vastly in shape and size. ‘Concave’ meets this practical requirement, but is itself an object of beauty – remarkably detailed and meticulously made. It is produced in two halves and can be used as such or joined as one whole piece.


Simon Pengelly set up his London based studio in 1993. His understanding of how people us and relate to the objects around them in his material and process driven approach to creating objects with craft credentials and ‘soul’ drive his work.
