SelfShelf Bookshelf by Nicole Van Schouwenburg

For those of you who loved This Into That's "Book Shelves", here's another cute little play on the same visual pun. Dutch designer Nicole Van Schouwenburg presents Selfshelf, a single book shelf that lets you stack up to 4 Kg of books in a "floating pile" on your wall. When we spoke to the designer, she was fairly sure that the plywood used is sustainably sourced. In any case, minimal use of materials and a simple, durable construction makes this a winner where embodied energy is concerned. :: SelfShelf bookshelves [by DM]
