Sun at Six Rise Bookstand
A graduate of Duke University, Antares Yee is creative director of Sun at Six, a Brooklyn-based design studio interested in how spaces affect our everyday choices and interactions. For the Rise Bookstand (2017), Lee set out to create a piece to emphasize lower room perspectives. "We were thinking about how changing elevation within a living room altered your experience ever so slightly," he says, "allowing you to perceive this routine place from a lower vantage point in a way that elicits just a tiny bit more joy." Rise is modular in design, allowing several to be joined together, making it ideal for storing books, magazines, records and more on the floor or along the top of a table or credenza. Handcrafted from solid black walnut. Made in China.
