Book Porcupine

The 'Porcupine' Bookshelf(GBP 950; about $1500) is the unique way to store your books. Designed by Holly Palmer. Has 18 sections in various sizes for holding your favorite book. When a book is removed, the fluorescent compartment is revealed behind. It is designed to sit beside a standard chair.
"The concept behind this piece is one of negative spaces - the books negative representations are made permanent in the structure of the unit. The Name of the "Book Porcupine" is given in peference to its silhouette, the stout legs against the spines of the books sticking out at various angles and degrees."

Sick design..
