100 bookstack bookshelves, large dynamo tables, and streep and multichair seating in recycled cardboard. These are the simple, resistant and ecological furnishings for the exhibition area, computer stations, and reading areas for children and young people in this new kind of library: the new Movimente Civic Library (Opening December 2012 - Chivasso, Turin).

Movimente is in a transit hub for trains, buses and car parks, and will be able to hold up to 30,000 books.

The furniture is designed by Nicoletta Savioni and Giovanni Rivolta.

Material: recycled and recyclable honeycomb cardboard

A4Adesign is based in Milan and, since 2002, has been involved in the creation and production of design objects and furniture in honeycomb cardboard. The company designs and manufactures cardboard stage settings, installations for exhibitions and commercial areas, and for refreshment and recreational areas for adults and children.

All in recycled, recyclable and reusable cardboard.
The company is run by architects Nicoletta Savioni and Giovanni Rivolta, from leading Italian and international studios, who still run their own business.  Architecture strongly influences the approach of these professional project managers, designers, set designers and communicators.
