The Frame-shift bookcase is a new and attractive system in this furniture category. The target audience for this frame-shift shelving system is those who have always dreamed of making bookshelves shut at all times and then, on the contrary, absolutely opened.

All shelves have unique profiles, along which the "doors" are sliding, pushed apart, and closed. These "doors" can be removed entirely or partially interchanged, and from both facades.

The Frame-shift bookcase is versatile both from a functional and aesthetic point of view. "A multilevel structure is created with overlapping horizontal lines placed at intervals, with sliding doors and backs that can be placed as desired to create open and closed compartments," noticed by its creators. "The magic of sliding panels makes this an extremely versatile piece of furniture, and its elegance is enhanced by the sophisticated design of the double-sided track."
