SWAPPING BOOKSHELF / Swap your book free, 24/7

SWAPPING BOOKSHELF
SWAPPING BOOKSHELF

The swapping bookshelf is a public furniture which you can approach and use 24/7, with no subscription or fees required, with the sole responsibility of swapping books. It's design ensures durability from weather conditions and vandalism. A solar panel roof supplies power to LED lights, placed in every shelf illuminating them during the night. Updated on a daily basis, the bookshelf's collection depends on its users' good will. The aim of the project is to spread so that each neighbourhood can have its own swapping bookshelf, becoming a vital element of public space, where ideas are freely spread and people interact and socialize.
