The B-OK by Marica Vizzuso, a young industrial designer hailing from Italy, is a unique shelving system that rethinks the look and function of more traditional ones. Similar to CD and DVD towers, the book shelf is made out of a series of asymmetrical slots that allow people to store their readings more conveniently and artistically. Very modern, the aesthetic is almost digital with a crafty flair. The designer writes, "Why do you place books in a conventional way when you can have both an amusing and aesthetically interesting alternative?"
The crowning feature of B-OK by Marica Vizzuso, however, is the fact that it can be converted from a classic four-sided tower into a room divider. It unfolds to create an even more dynamic decor piece in the home.
