The "agili" concept came from the need to create a continuous transforming space. The uniqueness of this project was to tranform the dimensions of the bookcase without losing a large storage space.

The user has the ability to change its own space just playing with the dimensions, reducing or enlarging the volume of the bookcase by a simple movement.

The main challenge was how the idea would be translated into practice, by finding an appropriate instrument to tranform the storage space. Making the necessary tests on the prototype, we succeded to reduce to 20% the loss of the storage space, as the bookcase will opens and closes.
