It may be a digital age, but some people just can't stop buying books. We always say that one should not use more than they need, and that's what is neat about Dutch designerReinier de Jong's expanding bookcase; like a pair of Sansabelt pants after Thanksgiving dinner, it expands as required to accommodate its contents.

"REK is a bookcase that grows with your book collection. The more books, the bigger the bookcase," explains de Jong. "The zigzag shaped parts slide in and out of each other, providing as much space as needed. With REK there will be no silly sights of half an empty bookcase anymore because REK will always be full. Also with the different spaces that appear you can arrange your books according to their size."
