A finalist at the Green Furniture Awards 2012 , the ‘A-Board’ by Argentine-born Italy-based Tomas Schön’s is a bookshelf  that consists simply of an eco-labeled plywood board and one strong orange ribbon. Using an innovative way to bend wood with the use of a laser cutter, this flat-pack, no-glue, no-screw shelving unit transforms from a single sheet into a shelf with just the pull of its ribbon. Exhibited at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair , this elegant piece of design is self-supporting and will rest elegantly against any wall.
