When Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation in Sydney, Australia commissioned LAVA architecture to build them a bookcase, the result was this unexpected but aesthetically pleasing honeycomb style bookcase.

This bookcase by LAVA architecture is backlit, and the books fill the honeycomb bookcase slots.

The honeycomb bookcase was commissioned for the first anniversary of the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation

Implications - Products like this are particularly appealing to consumers because they take something that is ordinary and mundane like a bookcase and completely redefine it as something extraordinary and unique. By giving customers the ability to transform their home interior into a futuristic and thoroughly creative space, companies that think along this kind of creative vector are bound to find a market that is eager for their creations.
