Extendable bookcase

REK is a bookcase that grows with one’s book collection. The more books, the bigger the bookcase. The zig-zag shaped, 6 cm thick parts slide in and out, providing as much space as needed. In this way, REK will always be full regardless of the quantity of books. In addition, the varying spaces that appear allow one to arrange books according to their size.

REK is constructed with a high level of precision. In the standard configuration, the outside of REK is finished with white high gloss laminate, and the inside is finished with warm grey satin laminate. Custom laminate colors are also available.
