Design of the Day – The perfect bookself

Brooklyn designers Coleen and Eric, met whilst studying industrial design at Pratt Institute, New York and have created this fantastically simple yet brilliant book shelf. Fully customisable, the “Hold on Tight” shelf has an integrated book stopper which runs through the middle of the base and can be tightened to stay in place – genius!

You can even choose to have a beach, walnut or oak shelf as well as the colour of your block. The shelf is 41 inches long, 11 inches high and 8 inches deep.

All these years we’ve bought shoddy book ends which have little impact in stopping books flying off the end of the shelf (especially if your collection is rather vast) and we could have solved this problem with a simple design.

If your desperate to get you mitts on Coleen and Eric’s ingenious creation you can email colleen.whiteley@gmail.com for a price.
