Librias is a a book as a shelf. A minimalistic object where the book “floats” at the wall.
The big brother is Librias is Booklynbridge.
In this case the “invisible” supports are made by two wood blocks. The hardcovers hide them, and camouflage themselves among the other books.
On the inner side of the hardcover a strap made of spring-steel ensures the binding to the wood block.
The glass shelf is almost invisible, suggesting that the books are floating in the air.
Libria is a design product, but also a manifesto: it highlights the role of culture as sustenance for man’s life.
