De Padova / Concorso Vico Magistretti

Shelf

“[…] design, which starts from a precise executive and functional concept, and is so simple that it endows the object with its distinctive character.” Vico Magistretti
A bookcase, simple, nothing more, nothing less. But without the irritation of having books, magazines, catalogues that slide slowly and untidily bend and fold onto each other. Without the use of a bookend. A slight and smooth curve applied to the shelf, furthermore a structural element aid. At the sides, a sloping component is used to hold the shelves and sustain the first book of the row, a starting point.
