Musa Boom designs a Bookshelves in Re-board

Free-standing bookshelves entirely made in Re-board with interlocking joints.  
Re-board is a paper based board, it is incredibly lightweight yet exceptionally strong. It is durable and contains no harmful components and it is form stable. And because it utilising waterbased adhesives it can be recycled as paper in normal waste paper streams.
Libreria autoportante interamente realizzata in Re-board con giunti ad incastro.

Structural shelves and uprights will be constructed from 10mm sheet doubled without break, in order to have a total thickness of 20mm. Besides increasing the resistance, in this way the view of the interior in reboard is limited to the maximum, in fact you can see it only to the short sides of bookshelves.

Ripiani e montanti strutturali, sono costruiti risvoltando e raddoppiando in modo continuo un foglio da 10mm in reboard, si otterrà così spessore complessivo di 20mm. In questo modo oltre ad aumentare la resistenza degli elementi si limita al massimo la vista dell'interno in reboard, che resterà visibile solo sui lati corti della libreria.
