NC-B Resonate Bookshelf - Haworth

Versatile Design

Fluid lines, formed of bent plywood and painted, become a work of art. Whether symmetric or offset, in a single color or two-tone paint, the award-winning design retains its integrity in a wide range of configurations and finish combinations.

Sculptural storage

NC-B Resonate designer Nicolai Czumaj-Bront has created a storage element that can both create or define a space as well as provide a backdrop within an environment.  

Inventive separation

Against a wall Resonate creates a stark rolling landscape backdrop; out in space Resonate acts like a woven sculpture and changes upon the angle in which it is viewed. 

“I want to bring an idea down to its essence without sacrificing what makes it desirable. With this in mind, I try to create solutions that are both simple and exciting.”

-- Nicolai Czumaj-Bront

Inspired by Nature

The thin open profile of Resonate provides pass through views and introduces a play with light and shadow, similar to effects that one might see in nature. The use of contrasting finish highlights the form and emphasizes the dialogue between the positive and negative space.The forms were inspired by that of a rolling landscape in which the foreground, middle ground, and background have all been merged together.

"My goal was to create a storage element that could create or define a space as well as provide a backdrop within an environment. "

Nicolai's Sketches for NC-B Resonate - Haworth Store

Defining Space with Nicolai

In his first sketches of what became the award winning Resonate, Nicolai envisioned an emotive piece of furniture that made a statement in the room it was placed. He attempted to mimic the fluidity and contracts of nature while also developing a useful storage solution.

Care & Maintenance


The individual characteristics and natural variations of wood make every piece of Haworth wood furniture one of a kind. We’ve treated your furniture with the finest finishes to preserve its unique beauty. Now it’s your turn – treat your furniture with a little tender loving care, and it will be good to you for many years to come. Follow these guidelines:

• Clean all surfaces frequently with a soft, water-dampened cloth, wiping with the grain.
• Use coasters under hot objects such as coffeepots and cups (avoid temperature extremes).
• Lift objects to move them.
• Immediately remove all liquids on wood surfaces by blotting them dry (moisture is not your furniture’s friend!).
• Use a protective desk pad under all writing areas and business machines.
• Level the product to prevent items from sliding across surface (and allow better movement of drawer slides).

• Use paper towels as this will scratch the surface.
• Clean or wipe against the grain.
• Expose the furniture to extreme heat, cold or humidity variations (keep away from radiators, air conditioning vents, humidifiers, fireplaces, etc.)
• Pull items across the wood as this will scratch the surface.
• Expose the furniture to strong sunlight (this will accelerate changes in the color of the wood furniture).
• Use harsh solvents – they might cause the finish to deteriorate.
• Use glass cleaners or waxes.
• Allow water to stand on the wood surface.

Regular Maintenance
Dust your wood furniture regularly to avoid build-up of dirt and grime that can dull the finish. Dust with a damp cloth following the grain of the wood. Do not use excess amounts of water and do not allow water to stand on the wood surface.

Other Surface Materials

Other materials that might be utilized in your wood furniture are also easy to care for and maintain.

Laminate Surfaces
For general cleaning, use a mild detergent with warm water. If the surface becomes stained, use a non-abrasive cleaner. After wiping, rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Laminate surfaces with a soft edge can be cleaned with 3M® citrus base natural cleaner or Armor All® vinyl cleaner.
