Inspiration: Juxtaposed Religion

5,084,000,000 people, 5,360 pages, 3,700 years, 243 countries, 7 books, 1 shelf.

Last week we wrote about a very flexible shelving design called the Parenthetical Shelves. This shelf, designed by Mike and Maaike, is the exact opposite and may be the absolute least flexible shelf you could buy. It does, however, pack just as much visual and conceptual punch...

The world's most influential religious texts brought together and presented on the same level, their coexistence acknowledged and celebrated.

Made of precision milled reclaimed hardwood, hand finished with oil and wax, this $2500 limited edition of 50 pieces is definitely aimed at people who will value the striking visual metaphor as art, not a landing strip. We think they deserve the $2500 for coming up with such a simple solution to represent such profound thinking. But, technically, it is simple enough to imagine someone DIYing one of their own — perhaps for an avid reader who treasures a handful of books above all others.

Whether you're looking for a shelf you don't have to decorate or you're ready to delve into some heavy reading, you can snatch one of the 50 limited pieces at Velocity (books included).
