The Ran Library (1982) is a bookshelf designed by Carlo Forcolini and manufactured by Stellar Works. Inspired by temple doors in China and Japan, the self-supporting design is simple, stylish and highly effective. The Ran Library is appropriate for both domestic and commercial uses, especially in studies, offices and waiting areas.
The shelves are made of laminate with walnut or oak veneer.

The shelf is part of a collection of iconic designs by Carlo Forcolini reissued by Stellar Works which also include chairs and armchairs.
Over the course of a career spanning more than 40 years, Carlo Forcolini has designed more than 100 objects and furniture pieces for some of the most prestigious brands in Italy. Trained by the masters of Italian design, he co-founded the acclaimed design firm Alias in 1979. Steeped in references to art, literature and cinema, his work is both iconic and functional. Each piece has a story and a raison d’être – embodying an approach to design drawn from a fascination with dreams, mystery and the unknowable. Forcolini is currently the vice-chairman of the Istituto Europeo di Design and lives and works in Milan.
Stellar Works is a contemporary design brand which brings together East and West, heritage and modernity, as well as craft and industry. The brand benefits from having a production base in China, operational management from Japan and creative input from designers from around the world. Their designs combine Asian motifs with European styles, creating products which feel fresh yet timeless.
