A Bookshelf As Easy As Legos

Flat-pack furniture is becoming more and more popular with younger people since it’s easy to ship and build. The Knockdown Bookcase uses no screws, glue, wrenches, or instruction manuals. Each identical wood board is modular and slips into a supporting wall behind it. Design your bookshelf however you want. I mean just look at the girl in the picture. You know she did that all by herself. Look how happy she is. Cheeky.

Front’s new collection is magical. They have created design with impossible characteristics that seem to defy the laws of nature. Front collaborated with magicians and learned their secrets.
