Gonçalo Campos has recently created the XI bookshelf. A bookshelf designed to be very simple to assemble, without the use of any screws or fixtures. Its assembly becomes very simple due to the very carefully placed fittings that allow for the parts to lock together, like a wooden puzzle.

The carving of the assembly instructions directly on the boards is what makes this construction so simple. It shows the most technical part of the object, and is present throughout the shelf’s use, reminding you of that one event. It also allows for taking apart and rebuilding it anytime, since the instructions wont get lost.

Despite it’s dynamic look, this shelf is very sturdy, because of it’s X structure and the suspended vertical support, that holds the loose ends of the horizontal parts.

This shelf was designed to be produced by CNC milling. This makes it very simple and fast to produce.
