When the Flip Bookshelf was designed, the goal was not simply to provide a place to stash reading materials and other miscellaneous possessions. Jonas Hoejgaard's creation affords some visual intrigue, pertaining to its contents and to its own interesting appearance.

The Nordic Takes cubby might have been made from assembling five square panels for a cohesive and basic look, but the designer opted to make the wall-mounted storage system in halves. Two square panels of either walnut wood or powder-coated metal are joined perpendicularly by a pair of triangular sections of the same material. To complete the contrasting Flip Bookshelf, you overlap the different parts together, establishing notched sides for a view within from the side.
