The Books Shelf by Matt Innes Can Be Rearranged to Form Other 'Words'

The Books Shelf takes a very literal stance, at least from a design perspective. Made for book and typographical lovers alike, the Books Shelf is comprised of individual components that, no surprise here, spells the word 'books.' Of course since they are separate, they are also rearrangeable. Thus, they can spell out 'koobs,' 'bosok' and more to confuse others.

Designed by Matt Innes, a graphic designer based in Melbourne, Australia, the Books Shelf may be very modern, but the use of wood gives it a traditional vibe. According to the designer, it was "designed to hold just those books you go back to over and over." Perfect for books of various sizes, the Books Shelf does limit in terms of number.
