Available in just one size, the Alivar Shanghai bookcase has an out frame in heat treated oak or black/white matt lacquer, with internal shelves either in matt lacquer (in rope, RAL 7038 grey, or RAL 9016 white) or in wood covered with a HD light cement in French Grey (as seen in detail photo).
The matt lacquer shelves are treated using the Duxilon process, which is a patented process for creating curved designs in different thicknesses with no loss of strength or stability. Inner shelves in Ductal® Cement. Ductal® Cement: An extremely high-technology product, the fruit of years of research by Lafarge, the world leading company in cement production.
