The Italia Bookshelf will surely remind you of a famous European landmark. Clearly inspired by the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Italia Bookshelf boasts the same tilt as the iconic structure well as some of its ornate details.

Designed by Andrea Vecera for Rasetto Falegnameria, the Italia Bookshelf may represent the history of a rich culture and nation, yet it also fits into modern society thanks to its overall minimalist aesthetic and quirky touches. These quirky characteristics include the elastic cords that run through the shelves to create a dynamic and artistic element, especially when used to hold the books in place.

Made using lacquered wood, rubber and iron rust, the Italia Bookshelf would fit nicely into any home.
