The VBookcase’s design was inspired by people who hold hands. The VBookcase, thanks to its zigzag shaped shelves, adds many books end to end, just like its source of inspiration.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The VBookcase, which was designed in a manner that could be used in different forms, such as double, triple and quadruple, can constitute alternative designs by increasing the vertical parts and number of shelves. The shelves of the VBookcase in the zigzag shape, which are fixed with connection elements, are assembled in a practical manner by passing the vertical carrying parts into the notched parts.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The VBookcase has sufficient storage capacity as well as an esthetic appearance. The VBookcase can be used in homes and offices.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
This design started in June 2015 in Ankara, Turkey.
FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The melamine coated Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) material, which is possible to be reused and whose wastes are almost completely recyclable, was preferred in the production of the VBookcase. The parts that are fixed to each other by attaching treenails or minifix fitting elements to the holes opened at the heads of the horizontal angled shelves, are assembled in a practical manner by passing the notched parts in the ratio of ¾ of the vertical carrying parts without using any connection elements.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The width, height and thickness dimensions of the vertical carrying parts of the VBookcase are 28x144.4x1.8 cm, whereas, the angled shelves are 25x34x1.8 cm. The parts of the binary VBookcase for total of 645 each binary VBookcase boxes with a maximum weight of 25 kg each can be placed and transported in a 20 cubic foot container. The dimensions of the assembled binary VBookcase are 118 cm (w) x 32 cm (d) x 144.4 cm (h).

The VBookcase was designed by being inspired by people who hold hands and alternative designs can be constituted in the manner of being able to use different forms, such as double, triple and quadruple by increasing the vertical carrying parts and the number of shelves. The VBookcase can be assembled in a practical manner and can be used in homes and offices.
In contrast to the bookcase designs that have flat shelves, which are used prevalently, the VBookcase provides the opportunity to store books in a slanted position, thanks to the angled shelves in a zigzag shape.
