PEDALS / bookshelf


PEDALS is an innovative bookshelf. When putting books on ordinary bookshelf, we have to make them lean against the frame or bookends. PEDALS provides innovative functions of bookend and solves the problem.
It’s composed of two metal poles and many boards. Every board has two fillisters to fix on the poles. There’s a piece of flexible rubber inside the board, and it reveals through the fillister. When putting books on a board, the rubber will be compressed and the board will be lower than other ones, becoming a hollow place, clamping books between.
PEDALS can be installed everywhere. It’s convenient, saves space, also provides various usages.
