The Avalon bookend is named after the holy island of Avalon, stemming from Celtic mythology. Just like the island, Avalon stands as a solid and stoic focal point, surrounded by a sea of the books you love, or on its own as a sculptural element.
The shape resembles a cylinder that has been sliced at the center and set off with a gentle push, creating two entities that mirror each other, as if constantly waiting to merge back into place again. This tension gives Avalon a grounded yet agile and graceful presence.
Avalon is design with simplicity at its core and stripped of unnecessary layers, allowing for the owner to build their own story.
“I always take a sculptural approach to designing, making each project convey a story, a dream, or an emotion”
– Signe Hytte
