Salkım Bookhanger

"salkım” means “bunch” or “cluster” (as in grapes) in turkish. With the idea of using less material on book storage, conventional hook form and function is applied on a new line of products. Making a library, much lighter than the books it holds, possible. Pieces hooked on each other complete the whole with colors, weight balance and juxtaposition of the books within. Being hooked at a single point give the impression of “lightness” to otherwise “heavy” books/bookshelves. Even a faint circulation of air in the displayed space moves the clusters giving them a motion that emphasize the “lightness”. 2006 Blickfang Vienna, MAK (modern/contemporary arts museum) MAK Designshop award winner
