Knowledge grows, and so does this ingenious bookcase by Dutch furniture and interior designer Reinier de Jong. The REK bookcase comes to you as a compact composition of interlocking units which can be pulled out and opened up as per your volumes and storage requirements. The zigzag shaped bookcase lets you not only display your books in a distinctly modernist style, but also lets you adapt it to the expansions and contractions of your space and collection.
The design breaks away from convention, offering multiple options in storage that vary in dimension and purpose; the narrow voids are perfect for magazines while larger units impeccably accommodate those giant encyclopedias. Looking to create more room for the remainder of your life? Just push this zigzag shaped bookcase back in, sliding the units back into each other to arrive at slimmer and more compact configurations.
Built of MDF wood and high pressure laminates (HPL), the bookcase measures a modest 30 inches wide when collapsed but opens up to offer 88 inches of bookshelf space. Available in both recycled and standard HPL, the design is available in four interior colors – diamond grey, lava grey, clear grey and platinum white. You can purchase this brilliant product directly from the designer’s website.
