Hanging Bookcase / Bookcase

Hanging Bookcase
Hanging Bookcase

Hanging Bookcase offers a novel way to store books – that is, suspended on wires like laundry drying on a rack. There’s no need for pegs, though.
Using less material for its construction that typical bookcases, the Hanging Bookcase was inspired by the racks used to dry laundry. Each book envelopes a vertical wire (which positions it), with its base resting on a horizontal wire (which bears its weight). The space between the wires and books gives a high degree of transparency, and the bookcase itself is lightweight.
