The eroded series of objects have been inspired by the natural process of Erosion – where a solid material like stone gets eaten away by an exogenic process like wind flow or water flow. This eating away not only results in changing the quality of the solid object (like smoothness or exposing the internal quality of the element) but also leads to the formation of surfaces and pockets that then become suitable for a different kind of inhabitation.This concept has been developed as a series of objects.

Give your books an original and dynamic arrangement: with Alpacbeto you can compose your own bookcase thanks to the honeycomb cardboard modules in the shape of letters. Choose the letters to compose a word or short message and place your books in the natural concave of the letters.
The Alpacbeto letters are also available in brown and black.

A new public art project will see benches shaped as open books. The benches - to be placed across London - will include one based on Michael Rosen's We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, another on J M Barrie's Peter Pan and a third on Kenneth Graeme's Wind in the Willows. The so-called "BookBenches" will be designed by international and local artists, and aim to promote reading for enjoyment and to celebrate stories linked to the capital.
