Shika

Shika is a desktop bookshelf. It can hold about five books and uses the weight of the books to maintain stability. The design grew from my desire to make a rustic desktop bookshelf from natural materials, informed by modern patterns of use. The backbone is carved from a single branch, the shelf made from four different woods laminated together.Shika means: Deer (Japanese) Money/ Gold (Ga) Drunkard (Yiddish).
