Murnau's Nosferatu, once again in bookends for Shohan-design

Murnau made the film Nosferatu the Vampire in 1923. It is one of the first "horror" films in the history of cinema and a masterpiece of German Expressionism. Because it was shot in black and white and, above all, silent, the actors had to overact their roles to express fear, anxiety, menace and bloodlust.

A pair of tribute bookends for expressive vintage-style decoration.

Moved by this film, Yvon Luneau had already created a first bookend with the silhouette of Nosferatu in 2013. As he prefers to design pairs of bookends, he decided to rework this theme. With two silhouettes, it's easier to express and stage an action.

A female character was added to Nosferatu's characteristic silhouette. In this kind of story, you need a victim, an attractive woman. Unlike the victims of today's horror films, who scream and grimace a lot, those of the 1920s are more theatrical and bourgeois.

With its silhouettes, these practical objects become expressive and highly decorative, combining the vintage style of silent cinema with the contemporary look of laser-cut black metal.

These decorative accessories are manufactured in small batches in Portugal by our partner Bplan, with a focus on quality control and sustainable development.
