The “A-Z” bookend series from the designer Jochen Korn are manufactured from special concrete and weighing roughly 2.5 kg each so they not only provide a charming optical frame for supporting light books and magazines, but offer reliable support to illustrated books, encyclopaedia and heavy collections of books.
