Tschichold is a shelving system that is designed according to the design principles of what it showcases. It serves as a storage space for different forms of printed material. Its architecture is the same as that of a poster or a page in a book; where available space is divided into separate grid fields in each of which a different content can be placed. 
As a result, the appearance of the shelf is highly configurable. Shelves and side panels can be chosen from a permanent collection of designs or a temporary offer by guest designers. This allows the user to define the shape of the shelf, just like the graphic designer or typographer puts together the content on a page.
