Beely / Bookshelf


Beely is a bookshelf which uses the advantages of physical forces. It can be formed arbitrarily depending of the number of books inside and can be adapted to all domestic situations. It consists of eleven honeycomb-shaped cells formed by dispersing and putting books in horizontally, serving as the flat surface of the shelf. Thanks to gravity the books are locked in place and there is no need for an extra mechanical fixing solution. The shelf hangs from the ceiling without any further assembly and is a useful piece of furniture for young people who move frequently or singles with little living space.
