Always known for their cutting edge style, the Swedes have taken their love of simple, yet stunning design to another level. This awesome-to-the-max bookcase by Malin Kallman is a must have.

Part bookcase, part ladder, part perch, this radically designed shelving unit is the perfect piece for any room. With enough room underneath for storage or seating, and space up top for reading, this bookcase really has it all.

Implications - There has been a transition in the design world toward simplified designs, and all businesses should be conscious of this new consumer demand for sleeker, more refined products. Businesses that can incorporate numerous features into products that appear simple-to-use and clutter-free will benefit most from this.
