Noa Shelving System WhiteSanta & Cole
Noa is a simple modular shelving system designed by the architect Carme Pinós to make bookshelves for the wall. The modules, each the same side and shape and with a slit behind them to allow cables to be placed there are not directly affixed to the wall, but instead joined together by means of a discrete connector in the shape of a small cube which is joined to the wall.
With very few screws, a large shelf capable of bearing heavy loads can be assembled.
Carme Pinós graduated at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Barcelona in 1979. From 1982 on she formed a partnership with Enric Miralles, which ended in 1991. During this period the projects developed include the Igualada Cemetery Park, the Archery Range Buildings for the 1992 Olympic Games and the La Llauna School in Badalona.
Carme Pinós has received various prizes and mentions for her work, including the National Prize of Architecture of the Consejo Superior de los Arquitectos de España in 1995 for the Boarding School in Morella; the Colegio de Arquitectos de la Comunidad Valenciana Prize in 2001 for the Juan Aparicio Waterfront in Torrevieja; the Colegio de Arquitectos de Cataluña Arqcatmón Prize in 2005 for the Cube Tower in Guadalajara as well as the 1st Prize of the Biennial of Spanish Architecture in 2007 for the same building. Received the National Architecture and Public Space Award from the Department of Culture of the Generalitat (Autonomous Government) of Catalonia in 2008 for her career history.
