There’s been a number of things that this blog has been a sucker for. Innovative bookshelves is one of them. Here’s another brilliant piece. It’s the REK bookcase by Reinier de Jong.
Surely the aesthetics is something to behold. The shelf completely closed is striking. However, the functionality of the REK in its “closed” stage is certainly lacking. Yet, when the shelf is expanded to its fullest, it can be quite functional. The open spaces accomodate books of all different heights.
