A shelf is more than just a functional storage facility for your alphabetized CD collection; it’s a portal into who we are. Shelves are a design phenomena, a means to display our interests. The Italian designer has curated a variety of shelving systems from the 1930s including designs by Ettore Scottsass, Ercol and IKEA that are accompanied by personal objects from Gamper’s designer friends.
