Cool Idea: Ünal and Böler Salkim Book Hanger

The conventional hook form and function of the Ünal & Böler Salkim Book Hanger (price unlisted) toys with the idea of using less material on book storage, making a bookshelf much lighter than the weight of the books themselves. Each Book Hanger hooks onto the others and a slight breeze can make the entire "bookshelf" sway, transforming what would otherwise be seen as heavy books into objects with an air of lightness. This design was awarded the MAK DesignShop Award by MAK Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art Vienna and was chosen for the DesignShop inventory during the Blickfang Wien '06 design exhibition.
