Design Seen: Alivar

<< Back to Home & Style, January 2014

Florence, Italy
Created for the 30-year-old Italian company by Giuseppe Bavuso, the Wavy bookcase (starting at $3,469) is a dynamic storage system. The designer created individual blocks that can be assembled like a puzzle to accommodate a range of spaces and needs. Each block consists of acrylic that mimics stone’s strength but is designed to yield an undulating frame. Alivar recently entered the U.S. market at the Why Not Concept store in New York City and plans to open its own U.S. stores later this year. +39.055.807.0115, www.alivar.com
