The design of Tide bookcase is a study in geometry and mathematics, and defines optimal shapes and forms, created to offer the greatest possible surface area from all sides. The result is a system of modular elements with the scope to form innumerable different compositions, from the very small to the large or even enormous. It is made of glossy moulded ABS, in three universal colours – white, red and black – that can be freely mixed and matched. Tide can create the widest range of shelving solutions for books or for any other requirements involving the display and organization of objects, in domestic spaces, showrooms or commercial settings alike.
- Standard injection-moulded glossy ABS.
- Width: 45 cm
- Depth: 25 cm
- Height: 45 cm
Magis gives you more choices—for indoors and out, for the lounge, the café, the patio, the lobby, the classroom. By combining craft with industrial process Magis products deliver beyond expectations. It makes sense, since Magis means “more than” in Latin. While delivering more, Magis uses less—material and energy—a commitment Magis shares with Herman Miller. A belief in authored design is another; Magis works with top designers from around the world, such as Michael Young who, in 2001, designed a fun and very functional doghouse. Check out all the over 200 Magis products GR Shop has to offer.

- Zaha Hadid , 2011
Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid is an Iraqi-British architect. In 2004 she became the first woman recipient of the Pritzker Architecture Prize and received the Stirling Prize in 2010 and 2011. She grew up in one of Baghdad's first Bauhaus-inspired buildings during an era in which "modernism connoted glamour and progressive thinking" in the Middle East.
She studied mathematics at the American University of Beirut before moving to study at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where she met Rem Koolhaas, Elia Zenghelis, and Bernard Tschumi. She worked for her former professors, Koolhaas and Zenghelis, at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; she became a partner in 1977.
Through her association with Koolhaas, she met Peter Rice, the engineer who gave her support and encouragement early on at a time when her work seemed difficult. In 1980, she established her own London-based practice. During the 1980s, she also taught at the Architectural Association.
Her buildings and designs are distinctively neofuturistic, characterised by the "powerful, curving forms of her elongated structures" with "multiple perspective points and fragmented geometry to evoke the chaos of modern life". She is currently professor at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in Austria.
