As a fanatic reader, I sometimes feel I would like to see my books arranged differently. I have some bookcases that are functional, providing enough space for all the books I managed to gather, but I feel the room has a common, traditional look. If you feel the same, then you’ve come to the right place…our gallery presents you 15 ideas of creative storing items that were designed with a statement of originality. Organic forms, amazing geometries, mixture of colors and materials, shapes that I would have never called them ‘functional’ for a bookcase prove to be both practical and aesthetic.


‘Equation Bookshelf’ is a simple idea of dividing things in priority order… put together the books that you need immediately or the most important items between (parentheses)! Set others between [square brackets] and {braces}.

Little humans that carry their favorite books. 

A room divider designed by Kayiwa in an  ‘alphabetical’ order. You can store books, CDs, magazines or you can let it empty as a wall that separates the room.

Ideal for a contemporary home: designed as a functional focal point, the ultra-modern One and Cactus wall bookcase is funky and useful.

Storing items with different geometries

A bookcase ‘Cave‘  provides a private reading space within its form. As a seat height is just above the floor, CAVE gives a feeling of hiding from others standing around it. Books can be stored on both sides.

Organic forms for a bookcase


Joel Escalone, the designer of these bookcases called them MYDNA bookcases. The fact that they are twisted makes them resemble a strand of DNA or an infinite column. The twisted shape creates the idea of dynamism so that you have the feeling that they move continuously. 

Store the books under the stairs! 

The infinite power of learning

 The books rest on the table letting the owner pick what it’s necessary.

Dynamic and playful
