Rolling bookcase

The designed product is a made from a gas pipe. This bookcase is based on rolling. This unexpected movement of bookcase subverts our feeling. It is ideal for spaces where pressure and stress prevail.

Huxley's Ladder

“The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.” Thomas Huxley, “Darwin’s Bulldog”

A bookshelf for full utilization of space just under 8'/2.4m common minimum ceiling height with user accessibility. A pair of A-frame ladder structures with crossing rungs support six shelves loaded with books of virtually all sizes and allows a person to step up to reach objects at the top level. The shelves range from deepest at the bottom to narrowest at the top. This encourages distribution of large/heavy books toward the bottom and smaller/lighter books toward the top for stability. The structures are made of solid quartered white oak and the shelves of varnished MDF.

The tilted angle of the top shelf provides a variety of options for storing books – they can be opened to display particular pages, for example, draped over the angled top or stacked on a slant.
