What do you call the fruit of a simple idea that encompasses the complexities of human creativity? If you are Daniele Lago, you call it “Book.” The name is a perfect metaphor for the concept, as well as a blunt statement of its purpose.
Book is a shelving system designed to house, you guessed it, books (or whatever you want to put in or on it). The twist is that Lago gave consideration to the myriad forms books can take, and designed this system to take myriad forms. Like its namesake, Book can be whatever you want it to be and is only limited by your imagination and creative stamina.
The following is an excerpt from their site:
“Do you dream of a wall tree to climb on, to gather your books like precious fruits? With Book you can do it.
Do you dream of a life in colour inside a house in colour and do you think you would like to have all the colour shades in the world in your bookcase? With Book you can do it.
Do you imagine a bookcase that clambers up the wall, falling vertically like dominoes, or that takes on the features of a multicoloured maze? With Book you can do it.”
