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?

Christopher Jobson

This 2011 calendar is a promotional piece for Harald Geisler‘s typography studio in Frankfurt. The hundreds of keyboard keys are photographed row by row to decrease lens distortion and reproduce the keys at actual size. The resulting print will be about 2′ x 3’. Learn more over at his Kickstarter page where you can pledge some money and walk away with a print or three.
