The exhibition is a unique collaboration between Folkform and the long-established Ronnells bookshop on Birger Jarlsgatan, Stockholm. Folkform is the name of a design duo comprising designers Anna Holmquist and Chandra Ahlsell, both having studied at Konstfack (University College of Arts, Crafts & Design). Folkform have chosen the beautiful rooms of the venerable bookshop for the exhibition of their new book cases, a place filled with books from floor to ceiling, where they have put their new sculptural bookcases on show for the first time. During the opening,artist and author Carl Johan De Geer was reading texts from the books in the Folkform bookcase. Folkform believe, that in this time of increased digitalisation of texts, the book as a physical object will become increasingly desirable and that the reader will prefer a smaller number of well chosen volumes housed in a beautiful piece of furniture to a large number of books in a wall-to- wall bookcase.

During the opening, artist and author Carl Johan De Geer was reading texts from the books in the Folkform bookcase.

The bookcases are a new interpretation of traditional revolving bookcases, these often featuring three or four levels with larger volumes being stored at the bottom.

For the exhibition, Folkform and the graphic designer Martin Frostner, were publishing a book made up of the finishing lines of novels contained in the Rönnell collection.

The bookcases come in different heights, while the smaller archiver can be placed on a table or desk.
