Harry Allen Books Book Shelf

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.

“The Books Book Shelf by Harry Allen has a matte white resin finish and is wall mounted. From his famed Reality series, the Books book shelf has been cast from actual books.”

Treku Bookcase

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”.’

Plateau Wall Box

These hand made white oak or black walnut wall storage boxes can be customized to customers specifications.

They are made with traditional construction techniques with mitered joints.

“The Plateau Boxes are designed to frame objects in a natural, unobtrusive environment. Because they are blindly fastened to the wall, the boxes —and the objects they hold— exhibit a unique lightness of form. Each box is independent unto itself, so users can apply their creativity to configure the boxes on a wall.

Available in black walnut or riftsawn white oak, with sliding door and shelf options. Custom size and proportions available upon request, please call for details.”

Joy Rotating Wood Shelf Unit

I posted this over a year ago, but I just found it from a US retailer so I thought it was worthy of a repost.

“With its ability to rotate every shelf to a new or different position, joy has a versatility that can be claimed by very few shelving units.

The upright and shelves are constructed of a honeycomb core with steel reinforcing inside and finished in a choice of bleached oak or wengé-stained oak or can be constructed of a medium density fiberboard with internal steel corner reinforcing and finished in scratch resistant embossing in a choice of various colors. the steel supporting joints are painted in a choice of black aluminum or graphite color.”

An accessory for the home inspired by mathematics, this shelf is really something special. Multiples on one wall would make a strong statement.

We might have done a few posts on Susan Bradley before, but now her Creep Shelf is available through a retailer, so it deserves another look.
