Conoscenti Bookshelf

The Jacobsen-Binazzi Shelving Unit is a bookshelf that originated as a class project between Prof. Arch. Lapo Binazzi and his Master Student, Bethany Jacobsen, but has since transformed into a tangible, colorful design of rectangular units that can be reconfigured by the user. The project, titled Conoscenti, was selected for production by the company Genesis International of Siena who was interested in discovering young emerging designers.
