Ulterior has not explained the specifics of how these Experimental Bookshelves were conceived, but it has been indicated that the topsy-turvy storage system was mapped out using code. Certainly, with each photo featuring entirely unique and incredibly complex arrangements of open-faced boxes, the structures would have been far too elaborate and irregular to easily design and construct it in the conventional way.

But no matter how they came to be, these bookcases are quite the whimsical sight, offering dozens of distinctive ledges of different sizes, shapes and angles. Many of the cubbies are tall or wide enough to effectively accommodate novels and even larger hardcover volumes. The plethora of other peculiar nooks within the Experimental Bookshelves could house a diverse collection of odd objects.
