Michael Bihain has created a book shelf that takes on a completely unconventional form. Unlike the typical square or rectangular shapes that most shelves employ, Michael Bihain's 'Patatras' shelves use a circular structure.

Although they are completely different from the traditional bookshelves we're used to seeing, Michael Bihain's 'Patatras' shelves get the job done. They may not be the most spacious of shelves out in the market, but they are probably some of the more interesting looking.

Imagine a library full of these Michael Bihain creations; it would definitely be a lot less dull than the traditional boring rows and stacks. With four colors available (white, black, green and pink), these would add a splash of contemporary design wherever they are installed.
