SelfShelf Bookshelf by Nicole Van Schouwenburg

TH_selfshelf_050305.jpg 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.
