Objects Of Design #121: Ptolomeo Bookshelf

Perfect for small spaces
The invisible bookshelf

If you love the unstructured loft feel of big piles of books but fear for your safety, then this is the shelf for you. At over two metres high, it holds the books while disappearing from sight. You can stick one on a landing or in a small corner or buy as many as finances permit and fix them to the wall making it look as if the books are floating in space. £895
