Orbit is a universal design approach to bookshelf design which sustains the classic book browsing context. The design consists of two circular shelf systems moving in two orbits with an average capacity of 240 books. Orbit solves the inaccessibility problem which occurs in most of the bookshelves.
With its orbiting shelf system, users can reach the book on the top and the book at the bottom (which are the most inaccessible ones) easily. In fact it is fun.
