A perfect fit for small homes or urban renters always on the move, this insanely cute bookshelf is the work of two well known designers from the Buenos Aires scene.
Baumm’s Lucas Desimone and Laboratori’s Matias Resich combined their recycling-materials and carpentry skills to create new brand VU35, which will focus in creating products from wood and recycled movie film, a plastic material difficult to dispose.
Filmantes is the first result of the collaboration. It’s a hanging bookshelf which is also collapsable, given the flexibility of the film.
The discarded material comes from a previous collaboration with movie distributors Desimone had going, and the wood comes from Laboratori’s workshop. Even though they tried to use recovered wood, the film needed to be in perfect tension to support the weight so they needed a type that wouldn’t bend or modify with time and which could provide a perfect fit.
Now selling for 370 pesos (about 85 US Dollars), the shelf is also a neat idea for a DIY project, if you have the carpentry skills. Find it through VU35.com.ar.
