When a piece of art enters your home – this is Zanotta’s Joy 7-shelf bookcase, an ideal piece if you love design. Created in 1989 by the well-known and award-winning designer Achille Castiglioni, Joy 7-shelf bookcase is made up of a rod acting as a pin and 7 MDF rotating shelves positioned at different heights in the form of a letter L and painted with black scratch-resistant varnish. Its structure resembles that of a spiral staircase, revisited in a modern key, an object inspired by the concept of circularity, yet carrying new and fascinating meanings. When choosing a bookcase you need to take into account a variety of factors, needs and personal tastes, but also the size of the room and the number of books or objects you plan on arranging on it as this piece of furniture was born as the perfect item for book lovers as well as for fans of magazines and photo albums, souvenirs and memorabilia. With its sophisticated shape, Joy is a great mix of design and functionality, and can be placed in any environment, corner, wall, center of a living area or as an exceptional partition wall. Extremely versatile, the no. 1 bookcase for the Italian brand Zanotta allows you to combine it in different ways, giving your house a touch of extravagance and personality. Furthermore, this is not just a bookcase but also a work of art, displayed in the most prestigious museums in the world such as the Fondazione Triennale Design in Milano, the National Foundation for Contemporary Art in Paris, and the Museum of Art in Indianapolis. This is therefore a bookcase to be proud of, a valuable object rewarded in 1991 with the Selezione Compasso d’Oro award and with the Best of the Rest award in the Reissue category at the 2016 Design Awards. Joy is an evergreen, a bookcase that embraces, embellishes, and redesigns space, customizable from time to time according to your needs, and a real gem when it comes to style.
