Being a lover of books can be an up and down experience – in some cases, quite literally! This fun and smart bookshelf from Japanese design company BCXSY puts that to the test by creating a playful seesaw for your beloved printed volumes.
By putting the weight of printed works to the test, you can finally find out what is the ‘weightiest’ tome in your collection. It might well prove to be something of a balancing act keeping all of your tastes and influences on a level standing!
Created from American Walnut wood with powder coated steel parts, the work was designed by BCXSY’s Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto and is an entertaining and inspirational way of demonstrating the power of books…
