The FA.B. Fabric Bookcase by Aliki Rovithi

Home > Winners > #25345


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The FA.B.

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Fabric Bookcase

INSPIRATION:
People’s rapidly increasing book storage needs.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The “Fa.B.” is a fabric bookcase and a fabulous new way to store, arrange and protect your books and magazines. Outside the rationale of any shelving system, “Fa.B.” offers the user renewable storage space. A single or more modular fabric units can be added to the wooden stand in a few minutes. The durable fabric along with the wide open wooden sides of “Fa.B.” gives us the opportunity to use as little raw materials and natural resources as possible, according to the dematerialization approach that our times require.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The “Fa.B.” is a fabric bookcase and a fabulous new way to store, arrange and protect your books and magazines. It is suitable for your home and office and it can be used as a bookcase and a room divider at the same time. A single or more modular fabric units can be added to the wooden stand in a few minutes. In this way, every time your storage needs increase you don’t have to purchase more shelves or even a new bookcase. The castors allow you to move your fully loaded “Fa.B.” around the room effortlessly– as opposed to the traditional bookcase. The “Fa.B.” is a foldable – literally!- and easy to assemble flat-pack furniture.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2011 in Athens and finished in December 2011 in Athens. It was exhibited in DESIGN 2011 design exhibition at the Municipal Gallery of Athens where it was received by the visitors with great enthusiasm for its sustainable design.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
“Fa.B.” is made of birch plywood (laser cut). Birch wood, when harvested from sustainably managed forests, poses low environmental risks. The fabric units are made of a recyclable, resilient, stain resistant, wrinkle-free fabric. The castors are made of steel and rubber. Steel is a 100% recyclable metal and rubber can be turned into rubber mulch. The “Fa.B.” as a flat-pack furniture, helps to reduce volume and thus carbon dioxide’s emissions, during transportation.
