Expanding Bookcase by Reinier de Jong

From Reinier de Jong of Rotterdam the “REK” uniquely modern book shelf can enlarge with time and reading materials thanks to its interlocking zig zag structure. The REK has the right sized space for all sizes of books and will always appear full.

“REK is a bookcase that grows with your book collection. The more books, the bigger the bookcase,” explains de Jong. “The zigzag shaped parts slide in and out of each other, providing as much space as needed. With REK there will be no silly sights of half an empty bookcase anymore because REK will always be full. Also with the different spaces that appear you can arrange your books according to their size.”

    Nice design – what’s the primary construction material? I’d worry that slight environmental changes in the humidity might affect the sliding ability of the unit. Also, once filled with books, does it become too weighed down to maneuver?
