lift / bookcase


This bookshelf is a combination of the bookshelf and bookmarks, with a layer of soft and thin silica gel on the surface of the bookshelf. When people can’t finish the book on hand in a short period of time, they can lift this layer of silica gel and put it in the book as a bookmark, and place it in a conspicuous place to remind them. In this way, when people start reading again, they can quickly find the page that they haven’t finished last time.
In the fast- paced life style in the modern society, people can only use fragments of time to do the reading. This bookshelf is designed to meet the needs of the fast reading.
