milan design week 2008 preview: linteloo

designer roderick vos has created this unique circular shelving unit for the dutch company linteloo. it will be on show at the salone del mobile this april, where visitors will be able to spin it around in person. like a carrousel, the shelf can be spun around to access the books at the back.

  • The typology has been around for a long time – but this looks great! A really fresh and much needed take on the familiar book carousel. This kind of furniture is nice since it leaves you options – you don’t have to stuck everything up against the walls, and the top part makes a perfect place for a plant.
