The Floating Bookshelf

Like many designers, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay of Raw Edges pull inspiration from the strangest places. For example, in their Bloom bookshelf, the team combined the style of a loom with the functionality of a bookshelf. Users adjust black rubber stoppers on each of the vertical cords to adjust the height of the books put on display. The books look like they are floating on a wire, bringing attention to the individual titles rather than the bookshelf itself.

You can read more about the bookshelf and see more cool pictures of it in use over at Homes and Hues. If you like this bookcase, you'll love some of these other home furnishings we've covered:

Just stretch out the cord at one end, then let it go and it will smack into the next one, which will hit the next one etc etc like a dysfunctional Newtons Cradle, and the dust will be all shaken off. Several books too probably, but that can be a prompt for you to read them.
