Is it possible to stiffen a bookshelf only with a rope? Sail Bookshelf combines a sinuous profiled shape with the stiffness of columns and shelves shaped frames. Their nature becomes bright observing the weaves: shelves and columns retract allowing strings, that connect only outer zones of bookshelf, to pass. The bookshelf can be used both leaning on a wall and as a partition between areas: even the “back” is interesting and enjoyable.
