X2 bookshelf wins Inovdesign Award

X2 bookshelf has been honoured with the Inovdesign award promoted by Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, one of Portugal’s most successful and consolidated multidisciplinary projects in the field of the contemporary art and culture, with unique international projection and recognition.


Designed by Laurindo Marta for Wewood, the X2 bookshelf is a smart, fold-up storage that is fully customizable. The modular design enables the user to create new storage compartments for books and other decorative items.


The shelf is composed of two equal-sized blocks that can be reconfigured by adjusting height or width of the units. Each block consists of 48 wooden slats that are clutched together by brass screws, making the parts adjustable and stable. Reconfiguring the shelf is simple; all you have to do is slightly loosen the screws on both sides and tighten them back after you get compartment of the desired shape. Moreover, its flat-pack nature allows hassle-free transportation from one place to another.


The Inovdesign award intends to recognize the merit of Portuguese companies in activity that reveal the application of innovative practices of incorporating design in their products.
