Designed by Ron Arad for Hidden, this all-aluminium version of the R.T.W, or 'Reinventing the Wheel', in which the shelves remain horizontal when the wheel is turned, was derived from the original limited edition. Although intended for mass-production, in fact it was only produced eventually in a small quantity, thought to number around 25.
