The Joy 5-shelf bookcase proposed by Zanotta is an incredible way to organize your library, and a piece of furniture that has received international awards. In the design sector, it participated in the selection for the Compasso d'Oro in 1991 and won the Best of the rest Wallpaper award in 2016. This is an item that can be placed in a luxurious room thanks to its refined and innovative look. It features regular geometric lines, characterized by an internal steel support, yet the shapes are arranged in an inverted ‘L’ position, inserted one inside the perimeter of the other, from the smallest in the centre to the largest positioned towards outside to create a unique structure. This bookcase does not look symmetrical at all and the two sides are different. The practicality of this piece of furniture allows you to place it in a hallway or an entrance hall, using a narrow space and enhancing a corner of the house that would otherwise go unused. Thanks to the Joy 5-shelf bookcase you can mix the optimization of spaces to the search for aesthetic elegance. The modernity of this item is especially clear in its peculiarity, which however is meant to reconcile apparently-different concepts like beauty and ease of use. In fact, you can store a large number of books in this bookcase, turning them into a decorative element playing a central role in the room. The concept on which this project is based is the transformation of a practical piece of furniture to store objects into an opportunity to express yourself and your style. The top shelves are great to display decorations and knick-knacks, even valuable ones to increase the optical effect. Another option is to decorate the bookcase by placing on a beautiful plant on the highest shelf as a way to recall the natural world. With the Joy 5-shelf bookcase you will have an original piece of furniture with which to organize your very own reading corner.
