Anastassiades' hallmark of material juxtaposition is on full display in the Card bookcase, as he focuses on clean graphic lines and intricate details, each rigorously crafted and chosen. Offered in black oak, the freestanding structure pushes the technological envelope with satin brass joints and a Sahara noir marble shelf that juxtaposes the natural wood. This subtle contrast enhances the richness of the materials, aligning with the decorative approach of the 2024 Collection. 

Blending together the culture of design with the art of living, the Card bookcase serves as a functional yet elegant addition to any space. Its structural versatility offers four different compositional possibilities with a base with a height of 45,5cm: high shelf, low shelf, console, bedside table. Replete with discreet storage space, Card is crafted to enhance any living area, sitting room, or library.
