the floating bookcase, the air shelf is part of a whole air system that includes beds,tables and sofas. it is a bookcase made up of shelves or 36e8 containers suspended on sheets of glass. the hefty thickness of the shelves and volume of the containers contrast with the lightness of the glass weight-bearing structure, inverting the normal order of factors. each composition is like a work of magic, challenging the force of gravity and seeming to float in the air, opening up the space around it. air has two faces, and so it can even be set up in the center of the room, where it makes the space light and luminous, without any of the heaviness of traditional bookcases. the air shelf is at home in many areas of the house: living room, sitting room, bedroom, children’s room or study, as well as offices, libraries, shops and public spaces where one wants a design edge.
