Duret Younes of Morrocco designed this Zelli bookcase inspired by Zellige mosaics. Creating Zellig is a very old, traditional style of mosaic-making and artists are trained from childhood. The Zelli bookcase designer says the design process has not changed for one millennium.

This eco-friendly bookcase needs no screws, nuts, bolts, dowels or allan keys. Each painted and enameled piece fits together like a perfect life-sized puzzle.
