Bookshelves often keep books propped up and held in place with a bookend, but the 'ODDLY' table bookshelf takes things in a decidedly different direction. Designed by Youngmin Kang, the 'ODDLY' bookshelf incorporates a see-saw-like aesthetic that incorporates a wooden ball in order to keep literature in place.
The angled aesthetic of the 'ODDLY' bookshelf enables it to push the wooden ball onto the stacked books at all times to keep them delicately in place without toppling over. The design of the table bookshelf incorporates the aforementioned wooden ball along with a painted wire frame that keeps the ball and books in place. The playful design of the 'ODDLY' bookshelf makes it a suitable piece of decor for the home or office.
