Isn’t this just the cutest (and probably most complicated) bookshelf you’ve ever seen? It’s like a playhouse and bookshelf in one; what a fantastic way to create a reading atmosphere in the playroom! Uroko House is a creation of Point Architects from Tokyo.
Apparently it’s made into a mini-bedroom inside the bookshelf-house. See the pictorial documentation of the making of this awesome bookshelf.
Another one for the kids’ playroom (or library)! The Lego-inspired bookshelf, called Skew Bookcase, is designed by Swedish designers Smånsk. I like that the shelf is stackable and removable; you don’t have to get a whole new shelf when you need more space for new books. The asymmetrical design is also good for books of all sizes. And books won’t fall over without a bookend, since they either lean one way or the other!
If you’re into collecting rare, valuable first-edition books, this King Tut Life-Sized Cabinet should be a good place to hide them.
A robot-ish bookshelf! Where do these designers get their ideas, seriously? I don’t really like it; seems to look nice only with books of the same size.
More bookshelves by Sakura Adachi, including a pet’s version! Don’t know if it’s a good idea to combine books and pets, though.
