MR OWL ATE MY METAL WORM

The unit is flipped around and both sides are usable as a bookshelf. The title is reversable and named after Ron Arad's metal bookworm shelf. While his is sinuous this is a simple architectonic block.

Wavy

Wavy is a bookshelf system that rigorously combines design and function. It is a minimalistic product in which the thin structure and the wavy design, both vertical and horizontal, gives the ensemble an image of great solidity and lightness. With its extremely characteristic accuracy of detail and use of materials, Wavy is made entirely of "HI – MACS Natural Acrylic Stone" by LG in S28 Alpine White colour. Composed of blocks that can be laid one upon another and combined, Wavy conceals any kind of joint, thus becoming a highly elegant furnishing element with an extremely formal linear nature. It may be arranged as desired: superimposed vertically with module H.36, or horizontally, composed of 3 elements which may be combined: cm. 63 – cm. 124 – cm. 185.

Mission Inspired Revolving Bookcase

My revolving bookcase lets you keep a whole bookcase full of books close at hand next to your desk, couch or reading chair. With twelve 8 1/2" wide compartments on its three 12" high shelves there is space for up to 8 1/2 feet of books or magazines and the clever design means you'll never need bookends. The rugged ball bearing turntable is rated for 1000 pounds ensuring that the bookcase will revolve easily even when fully loaded. This design is also available in a smaller model with only two 12" high shelves and a total height of 28 1/4".

4° (four degrees)

Bookshelves are flat, so if your collection is incomplete, you have to put the books on an angle so they don’t collapse, and as a result they bend and become damaged. Because ‘4°’ leans on a 4 degree angle it allows gravity and math to protect your books, leaving your unique bookshelf neat.

Soundshelf

Why has the traditional speaker to be put away in the corner of the room or hidden in the wall? Speaker could be displayed, and the additional function could be imparted. The object becomes the item of furniture by a simple arrangement of dvd and books. Two suggestions of shape give the possibility to arrange the interior in the modern style and to achieve a good quality of home video amplification.

Book satchel by T. Anthony

The case was first spotted 30 years ago on a baggage carousel at Kennedy Airport by Mr. Stoppard’s wife at the time, Miriam. Curious, she approached its owner, a young man who told her what it was, and that he had obtained it from the Manhattan luggage maker T. Anthony. She promptly bought one for her husband, who, at least while traveling, has scarcely ever let go of it.
