Assembly Required. The great thing about this storage puzzle is all the many ways there are to solve it. Use the bookcases (assemble in left or right versions) as singles to draw attention to their zigzag design, or align two together from either side for a totally different effect. A set of rectangular connectors can bridge two bookcases to create one larger unit that "expands" to your dimensions. You can even connect them at an angle. Also available in maple.

Library as disco at Carlisle Bay, Antigua. Gordon Campbell Gray’s resort has brought the island 21st-century zing. See-through glass walls pulsate with violet, rose, and lime lighting in the evening. The books are pristine new publications and frequently replaced—not dog-eared, suntan-oiled paperbacks left behind by previous guests. Photograph by Barbara Kraft.

T.shelf is an abreviation for Triangle shelf. It is a unique shelving system that can be setup around your existing furniture, or can be just hanging by itself on a wall as a sculptural object. The concept was to create furniture for modern nomatic culture. It is easy to setup and pack flat for space saving transportation. The first approach was to get rid of screws. This also gets rid of the tools in assembling furniture.
It turns out to be a triangle shelf that uses cable and zipties to tie every triangle into one piece of furniture/sculpture and functions as displaying books, magazines, plants, picutres, or anything you want to display.materials : birch plywood , steel cable, ziptie

As the confrontational title suggests, sheets of smoke-coloured acrylic are impaled by beech poles to construct a shelf. First a small hole is made in the acrylic sheet and is heated for an exact duration. The wooden pole is then pushed through sheet by sheet. When the plastic cools down, it contracts around the pole to create a vice-like grip. This is repeated, resulting in a strong and stable structure. Therefore this product is about bringing joinery back into the foreground, where the honesty and technique of process makes the Design. Hunn Wai

One of Barack Obama's first tasks as president will be to redecorate the Oval Office. The Guardian asked some top designers and architects to tackle the job. Bookcases have been added to either side of the fireplace to communicate the idea that this is a literate presidency. All the furniture, including the previous president's desk, has been replaced by a large round table, suggesting that the participants in meetings and discussions are equal. The globe of the world can be used as a learning aid for any official unsure of the difference between a continent and a country.
