Books, sideways

A shelf that displays horizontally makes it much easier to read the spine. See Studio Parade’s good idea.

From the Series

Dutch designers Studio Parade have created a modular bookshelf that they describe as an “ode to the book”, as it protects the book while optimising the ability to read the spine.

The "Paperback" bookshelf occupies minimal space in a room while its modularity makes it versatile. The thin shelves of the Paperback are ideal for storing books, CDs, glassware and other items in a horizontal way, and can easily be arranged to be a design focus point in a particular room. With 13 horizontal slides, it is estimated that the Paperback can hold about 80 books.
