Waveform Shelf as a desk

We’ve posted the Waveform Shelf before, but Danielle over at Apartment Therapy came up with the idea of mounting it lower and using it as a little laptop desk. For those of us with small quarters, it’s a brilliant idea. What’s more, the fact that it has no legs means it will take up no floor space, which we all know makes a space look larger.

I’m certainly a fan of Harry Allen, and I’m pleased as punch that he’s got this new “books book” shelf (sounds funny). I might have to add this to my list of things to get once I figure out where I would put it.

These shelves are great for any application, such as in a study, office or living room. What’s great about them is that they rely on gravity for strength, so each shelf has a weight load of 110 lb for each shelf without putting any real stress on the wall.

Storyline by Frederik Roijé

This shelf would be just the thing to display your books- all the while being an excellent statement of modern aesthetic. I love that it can go vertical or horizontal and that you could change the look just by rearranging the books.

‘Sound finds a physical identity in the beautifully crafted Storyline bookshelf. By first processing a word into soundwaves, the physical shape is then mirrored in powder-coated steel, using an explicit folding technique. Appropriately enough, the word that inspired this lovely piece was “bliss”.’
