When Bookshelves Attack

November 5, 2010

Christopher Jobson

There’s been a virtual onslaught of innovative bookshelves this week, so I thought I’d do a quick recap of what I’ve seen. Colossal has not been immune to really great bookshelves.

Some clever new shelf concepts from Shay Carmon and Ben Klinger, of Israel-based Studio Ve. More info and images over at core77.

 

German designer Miriam Aust has devised a modular method of displaying old, unused books by creating boxed frames that scale to individual books. Extra space can be used for more storage. (via design boom)

 

The Trick and Cave bookshelves from Sakura Adachi. (via paul over at dudecraft who is a gentleman and a scholar)

 

Bookshelf/coffee table designed by Shay Alkalay. The slats serve as both bookmarks and storage, while the spines of the book form the top of the table. (via sight unseen)

 

And lastly the delightfully vertical Stair Case shelf by Danny Kuo. (via doorknob)

Any other hot bookshelves I’m missing?

Loving this series by Kramer O’Neill, Till Human Voices Wake Us. The extreme contrast and grittiness introduces this uncanny sense of foreboding. (via this isn’t happiness)

Behold: Excalibur, the World’s Tallest Climbing Wall

November 4, 2010

Klimcentrum Bjoeks in Groningen, Netherlands sports the world’s tallest climbing wall at just over 121 feet tall. Here’s a cool photo gallery of how it was built, section by section. My dad would see this and say, “Eh, I’ve seen bigger.” Photos above by Eric Kieboom. (via presurfer)
