How could we alterate the appearance of the traditional library? The main element for us in a bookshelf is the shelf itself, the horizontal and rigid element where the books are placed. By altering the appearance of the shelf, we wanted to give the bookshelf an unusual movement.
We wanted to create a new type of object that makes the life and the use of the books more dynamic. Usually libraries are static objects. Anti- libreria is instead a dynamic object that changes with the weight of books. The shelf, due to the fact of being soft, makes the structure dynamic because it allows the movement. Anti-libreria is entirely made of stainless steel. One material, both to convey the idea of rigidity and the idea of softness.
Anti-libreria is a modular system, it accepts and welcomes books and more: it can be used in any height and for any function, always assuming a different character based on the modules and objects displayed. Its versatility, its ambiguity, makes it an object usable for any space and in any way. Anti- libreria has an hybrid appearance, which leads us to ask ourselves what we have in front of us.

Everybody who seeks for relax, looks for a soft and comfortable surface to sit, sleep and lie down. We want to offer the same possibility also to books, which are always forced to stand straight on these uncomfortable and hard bookcases for all their life...
