The lightness of spirit and joy of life of the 60's were the inspiration to capture in this interactive way to store books, decorating with color and design any room, providing a piece of functional, modern-retro art. The legs provide a sense of surprise and an astonishment sensation, that take us back to the cubism movement.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
