Over the past few months, I’ve been trolling eBay for fantastic deals on graphic novels and comic book lots. I’ve bought so many books over the past few months that I’m now in the market for a new bookshelf. If space weren’t an issue, I’d totally go for one of these Tree Bookcases.
This bookcase concept was designed by Roberto Corazza. It’s a sight to behold, isn’t it? It obviously draws inspiration from trees, showcasing their beauty amidst their imperfection. The shelves aren’t straight, so it’s not a very space-maximizing bookcase. The cubbies are also sized oddly, so some of your books might fit while others might not.
Based on the images, I’d say the Tree Bookcase would only be made possible if it were wall-mounted, because there’s no way that tiny base would make the entire thing stable enough to hold a number of books at the top.
Or maybe it could work, if Robert didn’t mean for it to be stocked up with books in its entirety.
