Today this bookcase was reinterpreted by Poltrona Frau and was named Albero, which means “tree” in Italian. The bookcase’s customization and easy use that made it so popular in the first place continues to ring true in today’s world where tiny urban apartments and homes are far too common. There are 12 adjustable “cubular” shelves and the can extend to fit ceilings as high as 11-feet. It can also swivel 360 degrees, giving the tension rod set-up a bookstore browsing vibe.
