Henry Ward Beecher once said, "Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house."
It is as if the designers at Studio Frederik Roijé
began with those very words before designing their book shelving solutions. Storylines
is a powder coated metal wall shelf fashioned in the silhouette of a cityscape, providing rises and dips for your favourite tomes and decorative items to sit ontop or within. We think this design is just aching to be offered in customized silhouettes of various cities throughout the world, so buyers could organize our books by region (perfect for our cookbooks).
And for a larger collection, the multi-tiered and aptly named EightTables bookcase has been fabricated to fit into the corner of a library, its form also seemingly inspired by an imaginary visual skyline, composed of eight negative space "buildings". Hmm, is it just us, or could you imagine a low-budget DIY version of this design fashioned using the components of the IKEA Lack side, nesting and coffee tables too? An IKEA Lack hack waiting to happen....
