Silent bookshelves

Each bookshelf is made from a sheet of metal to mount on the wall to create a skyline effect with just a dash of color that all but disappears under your books. The shelf features a small roof form that helps you find your books with ease. Available in white, yellow and white+yellow. Designed by Antigone Acconci and Riccardo Bastiani

Hidden library door

A door hidden within a wall of bookcases at Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk, owned by the National Trust. It is decorated with real book spines, with tongue in cheek titles that reference events and people from the history of Oxburgh.
