Yes folks, we are obsessed with bookcases and bookshelves of odd, beautiful or brilliant design. Every so often we come across some shelves that catch our eye and induce some serious furniture lust. So enjoy these bookcases in our newest installment of Bookcase Eye Candy.
First up, we love books. Second, we love polar bears. Now, you can have both in this French creation known as Joe. Designed by Benoit Convers, this bookcase can be assembled like a three-dimensional puzzle. Made of high pressure laminate, Joe can be found in two colors, black or light gray. Want to know more? You can check out the outfit Joe was designed for at iBride.
Why think level, when you can tilt the world a bit. And while you’re at it, throw in some Lego-esque blocks and you’ll have Smansk Design Studio’s Skew Bookcase. Smansk has also designed custom bookcases for the Vagabond Bookshop, Sweden’s largest travel bookstore. Check out their website for more.
Last fascinating bit of design and function fused is the YET Wall Light Bookshelf (below.) Gorgeous piece of work that holds your books and throws some amazing mood lighting about a room. Not just a white unit, the YET Bookshelf also has colors in orange, gray and yellow. The YET was designed by Studio Kairos for the Italian light maker Foscarini.
