Here’s a clever piece of home decor for those who can’t get enough algebra in their lives. This bookshelf cleverly integrates mathematical symbols into its design.

The equation bookshelf comes from the imagination of estúdio breder. According to the designer, the incorporation of parentheses, square brackets and braces around your books and other tschotchkes isn’t just for show. It’s actually created to help you prioritize the sequence in which you plan on needing them. Put your most significant objects in the parentheses, then work your way out, just like you do when working a math problem.

At this point, it looks like the shelf is just a conceptual design, so we can only hope that the artist decides to produce these. If only I had one of these on my wall, so I could calculate the probability of that happening…
