Wonderwood, S. 20.

A particularly successful example of timeless design of the post war era. Wilhelm Lütjens succeeded in creating a minimalist, low-key, elegant, almost Japanese design with the use of cheap and very lightweight materials like beech plywood and beech. It can be used as a wall shelf or a room divider.
