"Burning Books" booksstand
"In Context of eco design"  workshop, Sofia Design Week 2012 - Special prize
The workshop took place in the University of forestry, Sofia, under the leadership of the top austrian product designer - Thomas Feichtner The products from the workshop was displayed in the Sofia Lybrary during Sofia Design Week 2012.

The background of the idea of the bookstand lays in the dark periods in the last century, in the habit of the totalitarian regimes to burn the books they considered to be dangerous as they didn`t support their ideas. So we created the stand for everyone who want to mark the power of the words and the ideas taht can't be burned.

The bookstand is made out of plywood, with non-toxic paint
