Ice Library of Wonders

The hopes and dreams of 1,000 people have been carved into massive blocks of ice for a new tourist attraction near the shore of Russia's Lake Baikal, in Siberia. "Last year we announced we would create the Ice Library of Wonders, and asked people to send us their dreams and wishes," local tourism chief and ice librarian Maxim Khvostishkov told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper. The first 1,000 suggestions have been etched onto the huge ice blocks, which have been arranged to form a translucent labyrinth that visitors can wander through and browse.

Chuck bookshelf

Although it seems to be no more than a simple and flat shelf at first glance, Chuck in fact consists of six thin wooden boards which will bend easily according to all objects with their individual weights and sizes stored in it. Each board can be lifted and bent to create space for your personal and favorite objects and books.

Melting bookshelf

This bookshelf employs the ice melting shape in nature. When ice and snow fade away and frozen icicles begin thawing out gradually, the smell of spring is felt. Such scenery is displayed through the bookshelf, with books separated and fixed by hanging “icicles”. It seems that books come out from the descending snow and ice.
