This book celebrates the innovation and inspiration in one of the most basic of all home designs: the bookshelf. From bookshelves that are shaped like trees, or ones that hold books upside down, this beautifully crafted book will bring joy to the book lover in you.
Inside, you’ll find plenty of inspiration and diversity, from “Juxtaposed,” a shelf capitalizing on limited space to display seven books containing the world’s most influential religions, to Sakura Adachi’s “Trick,” a bookcase that constantly mutates into a table and two chairs. Shelves can even be re-imagined: the way laundry is dried in China informed Dutch designers Studio Ditte as they created their Kwan bookcase.
