The bookcase Babel Tower II is a continuation of the bookcase Babel Tower which finds its inspiration in the famous story of the Tower of Babel. The myth narrates a city with a tower that would reach to heaven and the confusion of languages.
The bookcase made of seven shelves is built of different handcrafted woods and transparent and manually frosted plexiglass. It is rotatable, so that books and objects can be taken easily through spinning the structure. The centrepiece is made up offour 1930’s Italian nut wood table legs which support a photographical image at the top symbolizing an opening towards the sky.
Hillsideout [antique art design] is a joint project by Andrea Zambelli and Nat Wilms which came to life in 2009 out of a mutual concern and discomfort for the degradation of abandoned sites in the Italian Apennines. Hillsideout expresses the need to transform the state of uselessness but also forgotten stories into practical functionality.View designer’s page
