By now readers of TWOM must be thinking I’m obsessed with bookshelves, an obscure obsession. We’ve shown you the bookcase bed:
the staircase library:
and the slanting legoesque shelf:
And now, here’s a really surreal shelf to go with your Dalis and Hirsts:
Introducing the Invisible bookshelf. Nifty way to make your books magically floats on air.
The downside? I seriously doubt their ability to hold up even 5 large format hardback photobooks or D&AD annuals.
Amuse your friends
Despite the fact that I am on my laptop almost 24/7, I still love books. As a child I had sets and sets of encyclopedias, most of them from Disney, but still – knowledge is knowledge. They used to be stacked neatly from A-Z on 3- or 4- level shelves. From there, my obsession with arranging things started. Even now, I categorise my books (or stack upon stack of paper) and they’re usually alphabetical in order. But the most annoying thing is living within London area, you don’t have that much space. Indeed, living in Tokyo, I have less space there. Thus with the lack of space, sometimes you have nowhere to “display” your books and you’re forced to keep some and you never know which ones to keep and which ones to display. And the shelves take up so much space and bla bla bla. But one guy figured the best of solving this, and I love it. It’s so simple and yet so easily overlooked. And it’s the best use of space I’ve seen so far.
There so now I’ve let out another secret obsession of mine. My birthday’s next week by the way ;)
Thanks for the pic, boing boing.

Lookee what I came across! Great idea for a start-up designers’ studio (or photographer etc).
And this is how he’d done it:
If you thought that was amazing, check out his whole flat transformation, from an old, run-down flat, to a sexy minimalist, modern interior. Respect!
