Book Harp


Oh, this custom Book-Harp Shelf by swiss designer Hanspeter Steiger makes me swoon. Here’s what he writes about the piece on his site: “The strings of the book-harp are a play of light and statics, three-dimensional picture and bookend, transparent and complete simultaneously. Depending on the angle of the literary instrument it seems once closed, sometimes translucent – and turns to life upon passing. It captures the passer-by at the corner of his eye and draws attention to itself, the variegated content, or out into the sky.”

  1. The product stands up to the copy. Gorgeous.

  2. Nice clean lines. Clean lines always appeals to me. I like how the verticals are mounted to the ceiling with a reveal. This gives nice shadows.

  3. Very very nice design. Inspiring solution. Filing to perhaps make a version at some appropriate point.
