Award-Winning Carbon Fiber Bookshelf by David Anzalone

We often extol the virtues of carbon fiber when talking about cars, but this light yet strong material can make a difference elsewhere, too. For example, the Aliante (Italian for glider) bookshelf by David Anzalone is made of carbon fiber, and its aeronautic-inspired design is instantly impressive when happened upon in say, a study with many leather-bound books. Just because you own a few dozen books of which you’ve read a grand total of 11 pages doesn’t mean you have to keep them in a musty wooden display case. Show them off with carbon fiber, and draw the attention away from your horrible reading habits.
