Spirit of Place Collector's Set

by Oppenheim Architecture


This sturdy wooden bookstand was custom-designed for Oppenheim Architecture’s Spirit of Place and allows for the display of the open book in order to showcase the strong images throughout. The innovative rocking design of the bookstand works with gravity to keep the open book perfectly horizontal. The white-washed finish highlights the grain of the maple veneer and complements the design of Spirit of Place, with its white cover and emphasis on white space as a framing device for the imagery. The bookstand, crafted by a local Miami artisan, is in keeping with Oppenheim Architecture’s design aesthetic, in which the natural surroundings drive the built products.

The bookstand is sold together with the Collector’s Edition of Oppenheim Architecture’s Spirit of Place, and the book is signed by Chad Oppenheim.

Chad Oppenheim is a Miami-based architect whose work has been praised for its ability to transform the prosaic into the poetic. A graduate of Cornell University and a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Oppenheim has lectured widely and has taught at several architecture schools, including Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. In 1999, he founded Oppenheim Architecture (Miami, Basel, New York), which has garnered global recognition for large-scale urban architecture, hotels and resorts, private residences, interiors, and furnishings.
