Shelf of shelves

Plywood, various wood veneer. A display shelf incessantly displays itself without the participation of decorative objects. With a composition of four independent shelf units of proportionately diminishing sizes, each unit suggests a distinctive content by describing its own space and may be repositioned to create varying configurations.

Life is a chaos. So is our bookshelf. We didn’t think outside of the box. We just thought many boxes. You add your playful creativity and the result is a one of a kind. Think of Varvis as a rebel among bookshelves. Conformity is for cowards. Varvis dares to be different and will recreate itself over time. Challenge your creativity! With a metallic frame, Varvis stands firmly on the ground. It’s the four wooden modules, all different in sizes, shapes and colors, that challenge your creativity. Varvis eagerly lets you build and create. Again, again and again… The idea is that, out of these modules, you can create your own unique bookshelf according to personal taste and preferences. This is Lego for big boys and girls! MATERIAL : MDF and metal

18 sections in various sizes. When a book is removed, the fluorescent compartment is revealed behind. The concept behind this is one of negative spaces - the books' negative represenations are made permanent in the structure of the unit.

The shelf that does not require any bolts, tacks or glue. You only need a little bit of the imagination that without a doubt is found in every home.

Biblioteq bookshelf

Biblioteq is a Cape Town art bookstore which recently relocated from Kloof Street to the Loading Bay near the Cape Quarter. To draw awareness to the move - the folk over at frank wonderment, Lowe Bull’s design company, created this interesting bookshelf. The agency designed and created a square font that, when enlarged and constructed, spells out Biblioteq. Can you see it big boy? Look real careful. Yeeeeeesssssssss. Love the inclusion of the AK-47. Always comes in handy during home time in Claremont or on shopping trips to Canal Walk it seems
