Toward U / Bookshelf

Toward U
Toward U

Searching for books on tall bookshelves can be physically challenging for the disabled and the elders. However, this task can also be uneasy for normal people especially when trying to reach the books sitting on the unreachable top and bottom shelves. To resolve this problem, the angle of each shelf is adjusted to the center of the bookshelf, which is approximately the same height as the average eye level of adults so that people can browse the bookshelf without any physical discomfort.
