Shelves and bookcases are undoubtedly the conventional objects intended to store reading materials. This isn't to say, however, that a concept such as the Atecton Hanging System would be any less successful.

The newfangled arrangement proposes the suspension of bound pages from steel wires that connect to thin metal fins. Oriented horizontally, these can be slipped between the leaves of paperbacks and hardcovers, potentially serving the second purpose of saving one's current page.

Spines of various printed works can be strung up this way, cascading down in ladders that dangle from the ceiling-mounted tracks. Several of these in a row begin to block what's on the other side of Matej Dubiš's Atecton Hanging System, forming an effective library, magazine rack and room divider all in one.
