Rise Bookstand by Sun at Six

Rise Bookstand is a minimalist bookstand designed by Brooklyn-based studio Sun at Six. Sun at Six works with families, artisans, and traditional joinery masters from Guangzhou, China, some of whom we’ve worked with for 20 years. They specialize in ancient Chinese woodworking technique, continuing a long history of craftsmanship with our work now featured in the Forbidden City. They make their furniture using classical Chinese joinery, a fading traditional art-form passed down from generation to generation, which uses intricate, interwoven joints to create furniture without the use of any nails or screws. Rise Bookstand is a floating stand for books, records, and display. Wide panels showcase the natural grain of white oak, and tung oil is hand rubbed.
