Give your books an original and dynamic arrangement: with Alpacbeto you can compose your own bookcase thanks to the honeycomb cardboard modules in the shape of letters. Choose the letters to compose a word or short message and place your books in the natural concave of the letters.
The Alpacbeto letters are also available in brown and black.

Twist me!

In its side walls there are placed aluminium bearings joint with a wooden nut from the press. By turning the nut, the inner “walls”, are brought into motion and this way they can be positioned against one another, thereby creating space for any number of books. These can be fixed by sufficient pressing and library can be carrying even without emptying the bookcase.

BookBenches project

A new public art project will see benches shaped as open books. The benches - to be placed across London - will include one based on Michael Rosen's We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, another on J M Barrie's Peter Pan and a third on Kenneth Graeme's Wind in the Willows. The so-called "BookBenches" will be designed by international and local artists, and aim to promote reading for enjoyment and to celebrate stories linked to the capital.

Serpentin is a very simple library play : an oak bar rhythmed by perpendicular bars on which the books of any size will be supported. A clever way to store books and to decorate its walls. Material: Oak, red, gray, white or black.
