Bookcase TWIST ME! was born during the Summer workshop Lost & found organized by CA Flowers for Slovakia: (f4sk.com) in cooperation with Swiss furniture company Vitra. The goal of the workshop was to create a hybrid ( ready mady ) that joins 2 different types of objects. On the one hand designers and students of design were supposed to work with traditional folklore items and on the other hand use newer but already discard office furniture from Vitra company. In this case it was: 1. bookbinding plough and 2. metal sheet office rack. The result is a genuine object that maintains the theme of the book. In It´s side walls there are placed aluminium bearings joint with a wooden nut from the press. By turning the nut, the inner “walls”, are brought into motion and this way they can be positioned against one another, thereby creating space for any number of books. These can be fixed by sufficient pressing and library can be carrying even without emptying the bookcase.
