Knowledge does not take up any space, but nonetheless books are still very bulky. Until they are all virtual, printed publications will continue to take up space in libraries, which need specially-designed furniture to accommodate them. Pete Sans has developed a new range for Bd Ediciones de Diseño: sistema store, with the advantages of durability and easy maintenance of aluminium as well as great versatility. Modular shelving that can be extended indefinitely, on the wall or free-standing, a periodical rack, a CD cabinet, a book display stand and a lectern, as well as a handy trolley for moving books around. So that readers don’t get lost amongst the aisles in big libraries, there is also a colour code to go with the signage features.
There are other items from the Bd libraries range that complement sistema store: the Wellington lamp (Lluís Clotet), the Sevilla Bib Install table (Pep Bonet, Cristian Cirici, Elías Bonet) and the X family of chairs (Pep Bonet).
