Niko Economidis is taking minimalism to new heights with his Read-Unread Bookshelf. The Read-Unread Bookshelf is a simple bookshelf designed to encourage you to read by pitting the weight of the books you've read against the weight of the books you haven't. (I don't know about you, but my "To Read" list is pretty long.)

The Read-Unread Bookshelf has a simple design using only three bars and a leather strap. The shelf seems like it could be somewhat cumbersome if you were actually using it to store books. As a design statement, however, this shelf is simple and original without looking pretentious, something many minimalist designers try and fail to achieve.
