3 String Shelf

All that is needed to make a shelf are three lines and six connections at the corner of a wall. Bright in color, yet almost invisible, this shelving is adaptable by the simple placement of store bought eyelet screws along a wall and nylon rope tied at both ends.

This is the essence of a bookshelf as the shelf has been broken down into its most minimal components. Books stay in place by sitting on the angled bottom two strings while letting gravity do the rest of the work as the books lean into
the back string. This system can be strung as one shelf or as an interconnected corner shelving unit.
