Long Term Benefits
This is BILLY - our most versatile bookcase system! It can be the start of your own library, where your books are protected and you feel inspired to read. BILLY comes in several heights and widths, finishes and materials to suit all books and rooms. When your library grows, you can add extra shelves and height extension units to suit your needs.
Glass is mainly made of sand, soda and lime melted at a high temperature. Tempering or various additives gives you extra-strong and impact-resistant glass that in some cases can be taken straight from freezer to oven without cracking. A big benefit is how glass can be recycled over and over without the quality deteriorating. Also, a lot less energy is needed to melt recycled glass compared to new raw materials. Our goal is to eventually use only recycled glass in our range.
