Paul Cocksedge's 'The Invisible Bookends' Holds Novels Minimally

Designer Paul Cocksedge's 'The Invisible Bookends' collection is a transparent, free-standing decor piece. The artist is concerned with visual elements as he asks his shoppers, "..would you want to own something, when all you can see is what it does, not what it is?"

The Invisible Bookends removes this optic distraction as it highlights the paperbacks rather than the actual shelving unit. Cocksedge's interest in functionality above all else is clear here as the set holds more than a meter and a half of material, ranging from magazines to hard covers to special edition novels.

This living or bedroom essential is also easy to install as it doesn't require any specific fitting and can therefore be placed on any office desk, windowsill or flat surface.
