“Friendly Angle”BOOKSHELF

People will find it is hard to check the books on top shelves and lowest shelves. This design adds an 8°angle on each of the top two shelves and the lowest two shelves, so that the perspective of people when they look at the top and the lowest shelves will be improved. The "Friendly Angles" Bookshelf can make people feel easier and more comfortable when they are looking for books, and it also can avoid light reflecting which caused by environmental light.
