If your idea of bookcase is a whole of horizontal shelves or of storage units are orthogonal elements, lots of suprises are in store for you at next Salone del Mobile and Milan Design Week 2013: shelves that explode, diverge and revolve; the function of arranging books and objects is transformed and reinvented. As for storage units, articolated surfaces, hanging on the wall or… walking.
