Turkish industrial designer Mebrure Oral has found a contemporary method of displaying books on walls in an organized, creative and fresh manner. By separating books into sections like “has been read” and “will be read”, and making it easy to find each section with a two-level design, Mebrure Oral created the Target Books Shelf as an interesting aid for those loving how typography can prove useful around the house. Typographic elements act as the bookends, making simplicity the key elements of this beautiful, trendy bookshelf. Made of recyclable ABS plastic using injection molding, the three pieces of the book shelf are assembled into a decorative linear design. We enjoyed seeing that ideas worth spreading combine modern technologies with our defining potential for creativity. What would you like written at the end of your bookshelves?
