Shelftastic: Stair-case

December 3rd, 2009

I mentioned last week that I’ve got a ton of gorgeous bookshelves and other creative book storage solutions to share with you, so I’ve started a new recurring blog post: Shelftastic!

To start thing off, this first Shelftastic features a cool book case design: the stair-case!


I think it’s a pretty cool design and would work perfect in rooms with high ceilings. Imagine if it went higher than this and you could pull out more than just the 3 parts shown in the image above? It’s designed by Danny Kuo:

The initial keywords: space, storage, future. In the future space becomes more desireable because big apartment buildings are taking over normal 1, 2 or 3 level houses. Building vertically is more efficient because less ground square meters are needed to house people. Therefore focus will be on height rather than width in the future. However current storage furniture is designed for humans with a length of 1.7 or 1.8 meters also our furniture needs to grow in height in in order to be more efficient. This StairCASE is an answer to this need. It reaches the ceiling and the topshelves are still easy to reach without getting into awkward positions or getting help from another furniture piece.
