The Neverending Bookshelf

A ribbon of white that unravels and twists, creating a corian furniture piece that seems never-ending and destructured.

It is the fantastical Neverending shelf, designed by Italian designer, Luca Nichetto and produced by Andreoli as a unique piece for the ’I have a dream’ project, Italy.

The beautiful curved lines of the bookshelf evoke an image of piles of hair ribbons, or for the boys- a very hilly vertical race track.

Several adjoining elements can be used to form a sort of light partition wall, whose solids and voids merge in the sinuous and elastic unfurling of the ribbon.

The contrast between material presence and form is a further hallmark of the design, which makes it unexpectedly ductile and transformable, inviting possible new functions.

A stunning piece.
