Originally designed for children, we have found that this size is also ideal for small apartments.  

The Book Shelf is a unique, unconventional book shelf design created to 

stylise a classic book, symbolising everything a book encompasses: stories, adventure, knowledge, immersion and dreams.

The intention of The Book Shelf is to bring to life an everyday object in the form of a new practical design, symbolising something greater than the object itself. The super-sized book plays with the roles of form and function and an element of surprise. It creates a library of knowledge and fairytales,

representing a door into your own imagination and creativity, reproducing the feeling of immersion in itself.


The book as a book shelf offers a blank canvas to be filled, encouraging

the mind to break free of the everyday. It is a focal point by standing out

as a centerpiece in its own right without need for further decoration. While the design is simple and modern to fit into any contemporary or minimalistic home or commercial interior, it brings along a sense of romanticism and cosiness. 


Reminiscent of the classic design embodied within a modern contemporary form, The Book Shelf is the past and the present united and seamlessly fits into the modern homes of today.
