This unusual piece belongs to Shay Alkalay, the London-based designer and one half of design firm Raw-Edges. When I say ‘belongs’ I mean just that - Alkalay created this item for his own apartment. This truly unique Book Case has no drawers, shelves, or doors. The books are suspended among flat plywood stems, which in turn serve as bookmarks. The surface created by the spines of the books can be used as a tabletop.

Some bibliophiles might condemn this concept, seeing it as disrespectful and damaging for the books. Others will like the simplicity. Besides, who doesn’t love to flaunt their reading choices…
