A competition called “Swedish Wood Student Design Challenge 2016”, was initiated by the industry body Swedish Wood in partnership with the American University in Dubai (AUD). The challenge was to create an innovative and functional item of furniture for a hotel lobby using Swedish pine and spruce.

The shelving inspired by Liberty Tower in Tehran, can be assembled without any glue or screws and can be taken apart and flat-packed. The shelving unit is intended as a bookshelf in a lobby, as a room divider or as a towel and newspaper rack in a spa. The unit can also be rotated and is fully stable in every direction. Built in Swedish spruce.
