Using a sleek and minimalist design, the 'DNA Bookcase' allows you to put your books on display with a geeky flair. Designers at Cattelan Italia created the bookshelf to complement any space while efficiently storing your books. The DNA Bookcase has 13 ledges which spiral upwards so that you have easy access to your literature collection.

Cattelan Italia's beautiful shelf doubles as a piece of sculptural art. When fully stocked, the shelf looks like a double helix that's made of literature instead of genetic material. Where DNA is a roadmap of your physical self, this shelf is a roadmap for your cultural and mental landscape.

The DNA Bookcase was made using steel for maximum stability. You can currently purchase the shelf for either matte black or matte white depending on what space you're trying to augment. Stats for Genetics-Revealing Bookcases Trending: Older & Chilly
