VU35 is a new brand by Lucas Desimone and Matias Resich that offers products created from wood and recycled 35mm film — a plastic material that’s difficult to dispose of. Their first product is a minimalistic collapsible bookshelf called Filmantes, which uses strips of film to connect three wooden shelves.
The bookshelves can be purchased for 370 pesos (~$85) from the VU35 website, or you can take the idea and try your hand at making one yourself. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the bookshelves being constructed.
