Firstly, ı research some basic image of a wide variety of book shelf, library, library ladder and general ladder typologies to be sure my design would be truly unique, functional, practicable product. Then the main design idea was found; combined two different but also similar field, Architecture and Construction by using construction methods and materials to form a design.
The most difficult challenge came in making the first prototype and dimensions. In the first sight the design looks light but it is quite heavy. Materials used in design are iron and iron plates which is used in construction fields in our daily lives and these materials are heavy to move with ease. It is an weakness we accept while design our bookshelf however the design itself shows objects on the shelves clearly and unique. That reason makes the design successful in our eyes. Also the clean finnishes of the weld parts of iron rods needs sensitive workmanship and cleaning.
