Bookshelves in white matt extralight lacquered glass. Doors made by multiple hanging flaps in the front, middle and back, made of transparent glass with special colors which, by overlapping, create constantly changing chromatic imagery. 

Two versions are available with doors in warm tones (orange-red-brown) and in cold tones (blue-grey-violet).This coloured glass technique which involves inserting coloured films between two sheets of glass, and applying heat to them is the expertise of Glas Italia. A wide range of hues can be expressed by layering several colour films. However since the hue changes in accordance with which sequence the films are layered in, it has involved a numerous amount of trial and error.
